Blitz Puff Pastry
What do a savory caramelized onion and sage tart, a sumptuous baked brie en croute, and a crisp cherry almond pastry have in common? Decadent and delectable buttery puff pastry, the secret weapon and go-to favorite of bakers worldwide. This technique creates a homemade puff pastry in a hurry, with all the flavor and tenderness of a traditional puff pastry but made in a quarter of the time. Use this quick pastry dough for amazing hors d’oeuvres, main dishes, and desserts. It can be baked immediately or frozen and then baked fast for a holiday party showstopper without the fuss. Best of all, it’s made with real butter, no shortening or added preservatives (like it’s store-bought cousin!) for the best taste hands down.
