When baked to perfection, puff pastry transforms into a golden, buttery masterpiece that can be enjoyed in countless ways. Its versatility knows no bounds, making it a staple in the kitchen of any aspiring chef or enthusiastic home cook.
50 g lard
1 egg yolk
250 g all-purpose flour
125 ml cold water
200 g butter
Pinch of salt
Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Then, using your hands, add the lard. Make sure that all the prepared ingredients are cold.
Add the water and knead until the dough is smooth enough to stick to the surface. Then cover the dough and leave it to rest in a cool place for 30 minutes.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough and roll it out into a rectangle of 10 x 30 cm. Roll out the butter into an 8 x 9 cm rectangle and add to the dough. Then fold the dough over the butter and press the edges together with your hands. Then roll out the dough again to 10 x 30 cm and repeat the folding process.
Leave to set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Then repeat the whole process of folding the dough 6 times with 30 minute intervals of resting in the refrigerator.
When working with puff pastry, it's important to handle it gently so that the layers of dough do not become compressed. The dough should be rolled out on a floured surface and cut to size using a sharp knife or pastry cutter. It is important to resist the temptation to overwork the dough, as this can cause the layers to flatten and lose their flakiness.
Properly prepared puff pastry is truly a magical ingredient that holds an incredible potential to elevate your culinary creations. Its versatility knows no bounds, as it gracefully transforms into an array of delectable dishes that span the culinary spectrum. From delicate and buttery croissants that transport you to the charming streets of Paris to satisfying hot dogs embraced by a delightful doughy embrace, puff pastry emerges as an indispensable companion for both sweet indulgences and savory delights alike. Its inherent flexibility and unrivaled flakiness make it an invaluable addition to any aspiring chef's kitchen.
