How to make puff pastry


Puff pastry is a staple in every master baker’s repertoire, and is an important part of many mouth-watering recipes. Make this quick puff pastry for turnovers, strudels or any other recipe that calls for a light and flaky dough.

Step One

Combine the flour and salt in a mixing bowl, and add the sliced butter. Mix until the butter slices are coated with the flour.

Step Two

Add the water and mix with a wooden spoon.

Step Three

Place the pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it into a loose ball. Form the dough into a rectangular shape. Roll it flat and fold the dough into thirds, then turn the dough one quarter and fold it again to create nine layers. Repeat this entire step.

Step Four

Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap and let it cool in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and repeat Step 3 two more times. Re-wrap the dough and place it in the refrigerator for another 20 minutes.

Step Five

Remove the pastry dough from the refrigerator and slice it into equally sized pieces.

Step Six

Place the pastries onto an oiled cookie sheet. Leave ample space between each pastry to prevent them from sticking together.

Step Seven

Bake the puff pastries at 400 to 425 degrees F until they're golden, puffy and appear dry.
