This Time Yeh
This is the best puff pastry recipe(guide) that I've seen. It now has given me confidence to try again with a good idea of each stage. Thank you
I think you meant to turn the dough 90° (not 180° as stated).
Each fold, turn, fold multiplies the layers by 9. So after the envelope, then fold turn fold you have 9 layers.
Then refrigerate an hour, then roll out, fold, turn, fold, you now have 81 layers.
Am I supposed to refrigerate it again for an hour at this point?
The next roll out, fold, turn, fold yields 729 layers (not 2187). To get 2187 layers, you would need to roll it out again and fold into a long rectangle and then roll it out (without creating a square). Had I turned and then folded to create a square again, I would have had 6561 layers.
Is it necessary to refrigerate the dough for an hour in between rolling it out again each time before the fold turn fold step?
Finally Made It
Finally made this. Way easier than I thought though it seems there is a TON of fat in it. Guess that's the way it works. I'm going to use it to make my vegan "turkey" for T-day. I'll stuff it with marinated, fried tofu, home-made seitan, stuffing, and roasted vegetables. Topped with wild mushroom gravy. All vegan this year. If it DOESN'T turn out great, I'll let you know.
Whole wheat flour
I was so happy to find this recipe, I'm vegan and the best dish I wanted to eat for a long time Turkish borek . Thank you for the exact explanations. I wanted to know if i can replace the bread flour in Whole wheat flour?
Thank you Mattie for this recipe!
We have a vegan couple coming in to our restaurant in a coupe of days and my boss wanted to do a vegan "wellington".
The puff pastry was delicious as we did a test run tonight. Everyone, follow the recipe and instructions and you won't be disappointed!
This looks great! Thanks so much for the step by step. How many servings does it make? I'm baking for 100+
thank you for help us find ways to replace animal products and still be able to enjoy desserts, bake goods ,etc.
you/re genious my daughter ask me if I can bake her meringues and i was so ignorant and told her no way those are made out of eggs and I saw your recipe today
Oh, the memories
Great tutorial, as always. I used to love making puff pastry, and danishes, and kringles and braids and all those Swedish puff pastry yummies. Then I went Vegan, Gluten, Corn and Soy free. I want puff pastry but the curve is making my brain freeze. Now that I have vegan butter though, I may have to try again. :-)
I love this site, Mattie.
