15 Mins Puff Pastry Sheets Recipe (without butter)

I love making puffs, but the only thing puts me off is making the pastry from scratch since it will take lots of effort to make the sheets rather than the puffs. In my place i couldn't get puff pastry in my shops, so if i have to make anything using that i have to make it from scratch. Few days back i was in puffs baking mood and i bought few leeks, i wanted to try chicken and leek pie as well as a basic chicken puffs. So i decided to try out my own pastry, and this recipe from nisahomey captured my eyes. It is such a fool proof easy recipe to make, it takes less than 15 mins to make from scratch, since there is no chilling involved unlike my puff pastry sheets made with butter.
