What is the secret to baking puff pastry?
Always cut Puff Pastry straight down, never on an angle, to prevent layers from sticking together and inhibiting the rise. Cut up and down, and don’t drag the knife. You can brush an egg-wash glaze (1 egg plus 1 tsp. water) over the Puff Pastry to create a rich, golden sheen when baked.
What kind of flour do you use for puff pastry?
It is recommended to use strong bread flour, as you make laminated dough. The bread flour has a protein content from 1.5 % to 12.5 % which helps the strong gluten structure to trap water vapor as the pastry is baking and helps makes that flaky texture.
What is the definition of Blits puff pastry?
Normal traditional puff pastry requires many folds when making the dough. Where as the blitz method is a quicker way to make that extra flaky pastry dough. Adding butter into the dough.
What is the difference between blitz and regular puff pastry?
The difference is how they are put together. With the classic puff pastry you have a sheet of dough which you wrap around a block of butter (like a croissant dough). Conversely, with the Blitz Puff Pastry you incorporate the butter right into the flour, like you would when you make a pie dough.

The glorious buttery, flaky delicate layers of dough are exactly what the packaged version should be but never seems to actually be, at least in my experience. Puff pastry is definitely an indulgent treat to be enjoyed only sporadically, so when the time comes we should do it justice.

Puff pastry dough is fast and easy to make by hand or with a food processor. One batch replaces 1 box frozen puff pastry sheets from the market. It bakes up light and flaky with a delicate crunch. Money saving and delicious.
