How to Thaw Frozen Puff Pastry Quickly
This actually happened to me yesterday and here's what I did:
- The easiest way to defrost puff pastry quickly is to simply put the sheet on top of the counter.
- Remove the puff pastry from the paper wrapping and cover in plastic wrap.
- Place on a plate and watch closely. You do not want it to get too soft too quickly.
- Once it gets soft enough to start unfolding you should be able to roll it out and use in the recipe.
- Do not try to thaw puff pastry using the microwave.
Should you blind bake puff pastry before filling?
Blind baking refers to baking pastry or pie dough on it's own before you add the filling. Then you complete baking according to the recipe directions.
When a recipe calls for blind baking, you typically weigh down the dough if you are baking with traditional pastry dough...like for a pie.
However, if you're working with puff pastry, all you need to do is use a fork to poke holes to prevent the pastry from puffing up. The holes allow steam to escape.That way when you add the filling, the bottom of the pastry will not get soggy.
