Originating in France, Puff Pastry is the king of pastries--crisp, buttery, flaky and especially light, but time consuming and tricky to make. However, making a "rough puff" or "cheats puff" is fun and satisfying and it can be used for any recipe calling for a Puff Pastry. Because you use real butter it's flavor is superior to the store-bought version.
Because Puff Pastry doesn't contain sugar, it makes a perfect wrapping for various savory and sweet foods such as meats, cheese, and fruit. Make and freeze in advance and you can impress your family and friends with a chicken pot pie or fancy morning pastries in a jiffy.
