In my last post I mentioned pissaladière. A most important part is the puff pastry. And we are all so afraid to make this delicate pastry. This recipe is so easy and so reliable. Just give it a try!
Quick Puff Pastry
adapted from Menus from an Orchard Table by Heidi Noble
3 cups bread flour
1 cup pastry flour
2 cups unsalted butter, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 tsp salt
|See all the lovely layers of dough. This will make it fluffy upon baking.|
Remove from the refrigerator and repeat the 2 turns and folds. refrigerate again for one hour. Remove from the refrigerator for a second time and repeat the 2 turns and folds. Refrigerate again for one hour. Roll to the desired thickness and refrigerator or freeze for 1 hour. Bake at 400F until evenly golden, but the darker the better.
