DO YOU WANT TO PREPARE YOUR HOMEMADE PUFF PASTRY?
To prepare puff pastry at home: you will need approximately 250 gr of flour, 160 gr of cold water, 250 gr cold butter and 1 teaspoon of salt.
Pour the flour on the pastry board, pour the cold water in the center. Knead with your hands and form a loaf, cut a cross on the surface, wrap it in plastic and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, soften the butter leaving it out of the fridge for 20 minutes (room temperature).
Take the dough and roll it out with a rolling pin on a floured pastry board, following the direction of the cross, obtaining a sheet of dough of about 3 mm. Put the cold butter in the center and beat it and close it, folding and overlapping the sides of the square. Seal the edges well and start rolling out the dough to form a rectangle of about 20x50cm approximately.
Now fold one third of the dough in the center, fold the other third over the one already flexed and remove the excess flour with a brush. Once rolled up , wrap the dough again in plastic and put in the fridge for another 30 minutes. Once the indicated time has elapsed, take the dough again, put it on a floured surface, so that you have the rolled part towards you and roll it out again with the help of a rolling pin, then close it again in 3 and put it in the fridge for another half hour. Repeat this flaking at least 4-6 times and always let the dough rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Finally wrap the pasta in plastic and put it in the fridge for at least an hour, after which you can use the puff pastry to prepare the croissant recipe with turkey and sesame; if it’s too much, you can freeze it, in order to keep it at home always ready.
Enjoy your meal!
