The Technique

Puff Pastry 

Puff Pastry is a basic laminated dough that utilizes a roll-&-fold technique of incorporating butter that in turn provides a voluminous lift during baking. It’s then left to become golden & crisp. It may be used to prepare appetizer & dessert canapés that range from layered items, shells & tartlets or to make savory turnovers, fruit filled breakfast specialties & Beef Wellington. Puff Pastry also makes an impressive top pastry crust for beautiful meat based pies, too. In the South, even a simple substitution to your favorite chicken pie recipe becomes a bit more elevated when Puff Pastry replaces a standard pie crust. Compared to other laminated dough styles such as Danish Pasty Dough & Croissants, it is the omission of yeast in Puff Pastry that sets it apart. This rich blend relies solely on the butter & the folding technique for its incredible lift. In order to achieve the ultimate Puff Pastry, low protein flours are more often times than not used to produce the best texture so in this case, a blend of all purpose & cake flour in the basic dough works well. Learn how to make Puff Pastry in your very own kitchen.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator & place it on a well floured surface. Roll the dough into a 10 x 15-inch rectangle. Remove the butter from the refrigerator & place it in the center third portion of the dough leaving a 1 1/2-inch border at the top & the bottom. Fold the dough into thirds, then make a 1/4 turn counterclockwise. The last fold should be closest to you. Repeat the process two additional times. The dough will have a total of 3 turns.

How To Make Puff Pastry

The first step to creating beautiful, flaky shells, cookies, desserts & pastries is preparing the basic dough. Next, a small amount of rest time in the refrigerator allows the gluten to relax so it will be ready to fold & layer the butter throughout. During this time, prepare the butter & shape it so it will be ready to incorporate throughout the dough. Once 6 complete turns have been integrated into the dough, allow it to rest overnight then use it for a variety of entertaining needs.
