My long time mission came to an end, i successfully made puffs. Look at the pictures it looks promising right. I have made puff pastry before but it was a complete failure and a butter was leaking all the place and it was a complete mess. From that day onwards i stayed away from puff pastry for a while. But after watching so many videos and refering so many website, i got a little confident. But when many of my viewers requested me to post this, i got the complete confidence and got into action.
I took a recipe, followed it to the end and the result was amazing. So i decided to share it with you all. Check out the puff pastry sheet recipe before you check this. The cool thing about this is you could do what ever filling you like in this, the flakyness make it taste great. I have a recipe for chocolate crossaint and jam tart made with this. I will post the recipe soon. So try this and out and let me know how it turned out.
