Step by Step guide to making homemade eggless puff pastry
Course: Dessert
Yield: 3 lbs

Materials

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 100 g butter cold
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 400 g butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup flour

Instructions

  • Measure flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour water into a well in the center of the flour.
  • Mix and knead for a few minutes until the dough becomes smooth.
  • Chill dough for 30 min. Wrap in cling wrap.
  • Mix room temperature butter and flour together. Shape into a 9" square by beating it with a rolling pin in between 2 cling wrap pieces on a cutting board.
  • Roll the dough out to a 12" square. Place butter in a diamond shape on the dough.
  • Close the dough around the butter like an envelope and seal the edges so the butter is fully enclosed.
  • Use flour as needed to roll the dough into a rectangle shape until its ~ 1/4" thick. Fold the dough like a letter. Fold one side over the center. Then fold other other side over the center creating 3 layers of even size.
  • Roll out the dough into a rectangle again and repeat the letter folding process. Chill for 30 min.
  • Repeat this process until you have completed 6 folds, chilling for 30 min in between every 2 folds.
  • Your puff pastry is ready to be used.
