Why chill butter when making puff pastry?
Pastry margarine performs better than butter in making puff pastry because of its high melting point. It does not melt quickly, thus allowing time for the puff pastry dough to rise sufficiently high while not making it heavy and soggy. Then as the temperature increases, the pastry margarine will then melt and infuse into the risen pastry, giving it its scrumptious flavor.
no, spring roll pastry is a won ton wrap. Puff pastry is choux pastry, made of flour butter and water.
equal parts butter to flour
Puff pastry involves layering butter into a shortcrust pastry, then completing a process of folding and rolling and folding again, in order to obtain many thin layers of butter spread within thin layers of pastry. When the pastry cooks, the fat in the butter keeps the layers separate, while the water content expands into steam and forces the layer apart. In a rough puff pastry, chunks of butter in mixed onto the pastry as it… Read More
Beurrage is the butter block that is used in the production of puff pastry. It is also referred to as the "roll-in fat" because it is rolled between the layer of the detrempe (dough part of puff pastry). The steam released from the beurrage during the baking process is what causes the natural leavening effects and multiple layers in puff pastry.
It should contain flour, water and butter. However store-bought puff pastry is more likely to contain oil instead of butter and possibly some raising agents, flour treatment agents or emulsifers.
No, they do not. Pepperidge Farm uses partially hydrogenated vegetable shortening (soybean and cottonseed oils colored with beta carotene) in their puff pastry.
Butter is what makes pastry "short" (or, "light and crumbly"). It also adds the characteristic "richness". In puff pastry and flaky pastry, butter is wholly responsible for the leavening effect. When you think about it, a shortcrust pastry recipe, minus the butter is essentially the recipe for a water biscuit/cracker. Comparing these two things may help you see what difference butter has on a recipe.
No, puff pastry is often purchased in the freezer section of the store next to the frozen pies and pie crusts. Puff pastry is painstakingly created by folding and rolling out sheets of dough with layers of butter so that when they bake the water in the butter creates steam and "puffs" the layers of dough, creating the soft, flaky texture that puff pastry is known for. Won ton wrappers are more closely related to… Read More
Air could be added to a puff pastry by adding more flour, butter, salt, and water to create the air bubble. This is a good way to add dimension to your product.
Yes. Puff pastry (a.k.a., fylo-dough) consists of layers of starch separated by layers of butter. This is why it gets flaky and yummy when you cook it. But the butter in it can go rancid if you leave it unrefrigerated for too long.
Choux Pastry: choux pastry [ shoo ] Also called choux paste, pâte à choux and cream-puff pastry, this special pastry is made by an entirely different method from other pastries. The dough, created by combining flour with boiling water and butter, then beating eggs into the mixture, is very sticky and pastelike. During baking, the eggs make the pastry puff into irregular domes (as with CREAM PUFFS). After baking, the puffs are split, hollowed out… Read More
Bread is simply a leavened dough that is baked. Puff pastry is an unleavened dough that is folded with layers of butter and repeated rolled until there are tens of thousands of alternating very very thin layers of dough and butter. When this is baked it puffs up.
No. Eclairs are made from choux pastry. Choux pastry involves cooking flour,butter and water, then adding egg. The egg acts as a leavening agent in a choux pastry. A puff pastry uses layers of butter or other solid fat between a bread type dough that puffs up due to air and water expansion between layers of fat and dough for leavening, it does not contain egg.
1. The freshness and quality of the ingredients. Good, fresh, quality ingredients make it better. 2. The number of layers of butter and flour in the puff pastry, i.e. the quality and expertise of the production of the puff pastry. The more layers of fat and flour, the more puffing, or expansion, in the puff pastry. 3. Proper cooking technique. If you undercook it, it won't puff properly and it certainly won't taste right. If… Read More

The number of turns differ from Danish pastry to puff pastry because puff pastry needs many more turns. There can be up to 264 layers for puff pastry. Danish on the other hand has up to 64 layers.
You should be able to check the expiration date on the frozen puff pastry box before you purchase it. You should expect that if part of the puff pastry has been removed from the packaging, defrosted and then refrozen, it will not last as long as the original expiry date. If you are making your own puff pastry from scratch, unless you have one of those high end vacuum sealers, I wouldn't assume it would… Read More
It is a puff pastry with inside cream of almonds made with butter, sugar, eggsand almonds powder. Hope this answer will help you !
Not necessarily. Flaky describes the texture of the pastry. Puff pastry can be flaky but so can a danish which is not made from classic puff pastry dough. A pie dough can also be described as flaky but again is not puff pastry. Puff pastry is a french dough made without yeast or baking powder or soda. It is instead steam risen. The dough is folded in a manner that is difficult to explain without… Read More
No shortcrust pastry has small chains of gluten in it giving it a crumbly texture while puff pastry when cooked puffs up
its similar to puff pastry, but stronger, you can make all sorts of things with rough puff pastry, you can make : Sausage rolls Tarts Pies Sweet pastrys and more...
Choux pastry is used for eclairs and profiteroles and is risen by the steam expanding inside the pastry. Puff pastry is used for tarts and pies and is risen becaus eof the layers of pastry with trapped air between them, which expands when heated. The main difference is that choux pastry is just one layer, whilst puff pastry is many layers. Puff pastry tastes much more buttery, while choux pastry doesn't taste of much.

1 - Make sure you kitchen work-surfaces are clean and tidy. 2- Take the butter out of the fridge and cut into cubes about 30minutes to an hour before you wish to use it. (Depends on what the room temperature is like - you want the butter soft but not warm). 3- Wash you hands thoroughly. Then run them under cold water, to prevent the pastry from overheating. 4. When the recipes calls for butter… Read More

Puff pastry is primarily flakey. It should also be very tender, light and fragile.
Puff pastry expands because it consists of layers of flour separated by layers of fat. As the pastry heats, the air between the layers expands and lifts the pastry.
To make rough puff pastry, you will need 1 1/4 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 stick + 5 tablespoons of frozen, shredded butter and 5 tablespoons of ice water. Combine the dry ingredients, then slowly mix in the frozen butter. Add the cold water last, roll into a square and refrigerate for one hour.
No it doesnt. a basic pastry is 225g/8oz PLAIN FLOUR, plus extra for rolling out ½ tsp fine SALT 250g/9oz unsalted BUTTER, cold but not rock hard (or you can use half BUTTER, half LARD) 150ml/¼ pint ice-cold water
Produces a less 'short' and less flaky result as the fat content is lower. May also rise / have less air separation between the layers (for example in puff pastry) due to the difference in the amount of water that is present and available for evaporation. The pasty may feel denser in texture and more solid in the mouth than pastry made with butter.
well Flour for the structure of the pastry Soft plain flour (low in gluten) is used in shortcrust pastry to give a short crumb Strong plain flour (high in gluten) if used in flaky/rough puff pastry to give the pastry elasticity
The dough used to make Puff pastry and Danish pastry is folded many times to create the multiple flaky layers of crisp baked pastry.
A Puff in India usually costs rs.12/- and a pastry costs rs.25/- to 55/-.

The puff pastry is Vol-au-Vents, translated from French as "flight in the wind."
Turn overs and sausage rolls are good examples of things you can make with rough puff pastry.
No, as puff pastry is a dough made from flour, it is chametz and therefore not allowed during Pesach (Passover).
A "pastry" is a tart or flan with a pastry base with either a sweet or savory topping. Alternatively, a "pastry" can also refer to a yeasted and laminated dough (i.e puff pastry with yeast added) used for making danish pastrys and the like. Hence a croissant is a pastry. And a pastry is a type of food, food is not a completely separate thing.

In baking, a puff pastry is a light, flaky, leavened pastry containing several layers of fat which is in solid state at 20 °C (68 °F). In raw form, puff pastry is a dough which is spread with solid fat and repeatedly folded and rolled out (never mashed, as this will destroy layering) and used to produce the aforementioned pastries. It is sometimes called a "water dough" or détrempe.
Sausage Plait is most often made with a puff-pastry crust. You can also get good results by using a shortcrust pastry. If you prefer a lighter, crispier crust, you should use the puff-pastry.
