- Keep the puff pastry cold. If the butter melts before the dough has had a chance to puff up, the end result will be a flat dense recipe.
- If you notice the puff pastry is warming up while you're still working with it, place the sheet in the freezer for a few minutes and then continue with the recipe.
- Once you have the recipe completely put together, place the recipe back in the refrigerator to chill.
- Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough. Avoid using a dull edged knife which could compress the pastry together.
- Don't overwork the dough. The more you work the dough, the tougher it will become.
- Make sure you cut a few slits or poke holes in the top of the pastry to allow steam to escape. This will help prevent the pastry from getting too soggy.

If you're using store-bought puff pastry, you most likely purchased it from the freezer section in your grocery store. It's important to keep puff pastry properly wrapped to prevent it from drying out or absorbing any unwanted odors. Store it in airtight packaging, such as plastic wrap or a resealable plastic bag in the freezer.
