Frozen Puff Pastry 

I often use frozen puff pastry sheets, at home. It is a practical, reasonable approach. If you are a baker or a non-baker convenience is a smart road to take. We know that Puff pastry requires equipment and technique, and most importantly temperature control. Which is nearly impossible in a home kitchen. It’s time-consuming if you make puff pastry at home and your chances of messing up are higher than average. The inconsistency in the end result is expected too.

Frozen Puff Pastry

I have made puff pastry at home, and my experience says it’s not worth the effort and energy. It is a laborious attempt and holds great uncertainty in the result. In addition to that, whenever I am in the middle of my baking crises, one person who suffers the most is my darling husband. With immense patience, he listens to my whining and aims to calm me down. I am lucky to have him. But admit-tingly I hassle him more.

If a brand offers me good quality base ingredients in my puff pastry, I won’t bother myself to make pasty dough from scratch at home. Pastry man is a brand I have had an association with previously also. This time too, we are collaborating to reach the people who can benefit from such products. You don’t have to be a professional baker to create puffs, tarts, croissants and pies at home. 

They offer all pastry related items which are so easy to use. Puff pastry sheets, butter croissants sheets, pizza dough, pie crust and many more products to choose from. 

Even if you are not in the need of such a product right now, I recommend you must visit the page. So whenever in future you require any of these things, you have a memory of it.

Frozen Puff Pastry

Deep is a friend and I have seen the passion and truth in his conversations when he talks about his products. He would not compromise on the quality of the products, for him butter means butter. 

Today, I am using three products. And the idea is to share the variations we can bring in, in terms of flavours.

Count this as a blessing that the butter pastry sheet, the butter puff pastry squares and the pie crust are neutral in flavour. You can choose to make them savoury or sweet. The beauty lies in simplicity. The ease with which you can use them is angelic. There is a video attached below. please refer to that for a good understanding. 

Here I am writing down the ingredients and the methods for each. 

The first is all-butter puff pastry squares. You will see two savoury and two sweet options in the video. You must poke some holes in the middle of the puff pastry square using a fork. So when we place the filling in it shouldn’t rise. Make sure to leave 1/2 an inch margin on the sides, because we expect the outer sides of the puff to rise well when baked.
