Tips for Baking with Puff Pastry
There's one golden rule that everyone who bakin sweet puff pastry recipes needs to know is to keep the dough cold. While you're preparing the dessert and the dough starts to get warm, place it on a baking tray and put it back in the refrigerator or even the freezer to chill it again.
Keeping the dough cold will help keep the butter in those layers of dough. When you bake the pastry, the butter will melt more slowly which will help the layers of dough puff up so beautifully.
Should you chill puff pastry before baking?
Puff pastry should be at room temperature while preparing the recipe, but chilled before baking. Place the recipe in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to chill the dough and then continuing with the baking process.
