- 16: ... or 250 grams pieces for brioche pies.
- 17: Roll dough pieces in balls, put on a baking sheet, cover with a plastic sheet, and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Then your brioche dough is ready to use in your recipe.
It's more easy to succeed in making good brioche by using a special flour, strong in gluten, called "Farine de gruau". If you can't have this one, try to use a T45 flour.
