What is puff pastry?
Puff pastry is a flaky and delicious pastry that can be used in savory or sweet recipes.
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know that my mom is the reason why I went to culinary school and fell in love with cooking. My mom used to spend hours in the kitchen making bread, and obviously other delicious recipes that included puff pastry.
I did not bother much to learn how to make puff pastry until I was in culinary school. I was a bit intimidated at first, but hey! I got it done.
I won’t lie and say making puff pastry is my favorite thing in the world, so I used store-bought for this recipe, and it is just as great.
To clarify, making puff pastry is not hard, but I really wanted to keep this recipe simple.
If you are in a rush and want to make it simple, store-bought is best.
