Quick Puff Pastry Dough


Is there anything better than a Quick Puff Pastry Dough recipe? Until I learned this method for puff pastry, I used to buy sheets of puff rolls in the store. Store bought pastry tasted fine, but there is something extra special about making it from scratch.

To make this puff pastry dough recipe quick, start by mixing dry ingredients together. I add grated frozen butter so that it gets distributed evenly through the dough which is the key to puff pastry. I add ice cold water to bring the dough together. There is some intricate rolling and folding to get the puff effect. Chill the pastry for about an hour before using in your favorite puff pastry recipe.

To make Quick Puff Pastry Dough, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Quick Puff Pastry Dough


Combine dry ingredients


Sift 2 cups of flour and 1 teaspoon of salt into a large mixing bowl and place it in the refrigerator to chill for about 15 minutes.


Add butter


Grate 250 grams of frozen butter into the dry mixture, stirring occasionally as you add it to prevent it from sticking.


Add ice water


Create a well in the center of the bowl. Pour in ⅔ cup of cold water and mix until it comes together as a firm, rough dough.




Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.


Roll out dough crust


Lightly flour a work surface. Knead the dough gently and shape it into a smooth rectangle. Ensure the edges are straight and even. Do not overwork the dough - you want it to have a marbled effect from the butter.


Fold the dough


Fold the top third down to the center and bring the bottom third up and over.




Roll the dough again until it is three times the length and in the shape of a rectangle.


Chill before using


Place parchment paper on top of the dough and fold the top and bottom over the center. Wrap the dough with a plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour.

I actually made pizza with this dough and it was so thick that I could add cheese on the inside next time too.
