Homemade Puff Pastry

Homemade Puff Pastry // This homemade puff pastry is surprisingly simple and is great with a sweet or savory filling! | Tried and TastyThis is the EASIEST recipe you will ever make. Well. I thought it was so simple it couldn’t be true. One try and it turned out absolutely perfect. I had these recently at a friends house and I assumed they were store bought. Who makes your own puff pastry right? I happened to say something about which brand they bought or something or another when I was shocked to find out they were homemade! I was even more shocked to learn just how simple they were. Challenge accepted. The next day I tied up my apron strings and went right to work. Voila! Absolute perfection. The most obvious filling is a sweet filling, but you can also fill these with savory things as well. They are extremely versatile. Stay tuned for part 2… I will soon share with you the most delicious sweet filled pastry!

    We are making these today. They sound easy, so my fingers are crossed that they come out good. And your pictures are AMAZING.

      Yay for baking them perfectly!!! I loved how they turned out.. and if they were soggy in the middle we’d have problems. I don’t like me any kinda soggy anything – thanks for the sweet words 🙂

        Just wanted to add that this is more if a cream puff/eclair shell. Puff pastry is made up of many layers of dough. Some call it phillo dough, but in culinary school, and the bakeries I’ve worked in it was known as puff pastry. Now-a-days there are machines you can feed the dough through to roll it out, then you fold in thirds, rotate, and feed it through again. Do this over & over & you get that nice flaky dough that puffs up with all those buttery layers. Back in the day, we rolled by hand on the huge benches. It was quite the work out!

        In any case your cream puff shells look wonderful! Thank you for sharing!
