Tips for making puff pastry successful at home

  1. Puff dough is one of the most difficult types of dough to make, as it takes time and effort. This is because it takes a continuous rolling process while applying butter, and it is considered a rich pastry.
  2. Leaving the dough at room temperature for too long will spoil the dough; This is because the butter will melt, so the layers will never rise.
  3. Not to grease the tray used for baking with any type of oil or other, as the dough has in itself a large amount of butter, so there will be no stickiness in the tray, but just greasing the tray will burn the dough faster than ripening, it will give it an inappropriate shape and taste.
  4. Grease the puff pastry with egg mixture, which will prevent the dough from rising, especially in the area of ​​the edges, as eggs are a resinous substance that will prevent the process of rising the puff layers.
  5. Washing the baking tray, before placing the puff pastry on it, is one of the secrets of rising pastries, but in case you forgot this method, you can solve it by sprinkling a little water on the dough.
  6. The best temperature for the oven, for puff bread, is 200 degrees Celsius, so that the oven was previously preheated, because the steam that resulted from the heated oven temperature helps the puff dough to rise more.
  7. It is preferable to put the puff pastry after it has been prepared in the refrigerator, for a period of not less than an hour, and this is due to the success of baking the dough, the colder it is, the greater the chance of successful maturity of the puff pastry.
  8. We advise you when you make puff pastry at home that it be of a large and appropriate quantity, and you can save it in the refrigerator, as it will not spoil as long as it is found in the refrigerator, and it will benefit you a lot.
