Stir flour, 6g of salt and all the sugar together in a bowl of a mixer with fitted with a dough hook.
Warm the broth to 41°C and stir in the yeast.
Add the broth and yeast to the dry ingredients and stir until combined, then knead the dough for 15 minutes (until smooth).
Place dough in a large, floured bowl, cover and leave to rise in a warm environment for about 1 hour.
Place butter in between two pieces of plastic wrap and roll into an even rectangle.
Then leave in the fridge to chill.
After dough has risen, punch down and roll out in a large rectangle, large enough to enclose butter (1.2cm thick).
Place the butter in the centre of the dough, fold the dough over the butter to encase it completely.
Roll out the dough again and fold in thirds. Wrap the dough and place in fridge for about 20 minutes (Turn 1).
Roll out the dough again and place the butter in the centre of the dough. Fold and wrap around to encase completely then place in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
Repeat the rolling and folding process 3 more times, chilling the dough between each turn and allow to chill in the fridge before rolling and shaping
To shape, roll the dough out into a large rectangle.
Cut into 18 uniform strips and group strips into groups of 3. Layer the 3 strips on top of each other with a 0.5cm distance between the start of each strip.
Grate the parmesan cheese, mince the garlic and pick basil leaves and place in cold water.
Blend all the pesto ingredients in a blender, continuously check the texture. Add the remaining salt to taste.
Place the pesto and feta on the top of the strips, then roll the strips together and merge them at the bottom. Place them in a muffin tray.
