Short Cut Puff Pastry
You don't have to buy expensive packages of puff pastry when making homemade puff pastry is so quick and easy! In this video tutorial, I'll show you how to make Short Cut Puff Pastry, our favourite way to make Sausage Rolls! But you can use it however your recipe calls for puff pastry. Look at you saving yourself so much money!
Servings: 3 envelopes
- 4 cups white flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 18 ounces cold butter
- 1 cup cold water
- Combine flour and salt in a bowl.
- Grate the butter with a cheese grater and toss into flour with your hands until well combined.
- Add water in and stir with a fork, adding more water to make it come together if needed.
- Transfer onto your counter and gently knead a few times to make it come together. Divide into three equal pieces whether by weighing or by sight. They should be about 1 pound each.
- Take one ball and roll into a roughly 6"x 12" rectangle. Don't worry about it being super pretty but it helps in the ends are kinda square.
- Fold it into thirds so you're folding it like a letter. Repeat with other two.
- Put in a bag and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 2 days.
The average package of puff pastry is a pound.

I’m obsessed with filing my freezers with homemade products and this makes my heart sing. I need to go restock this because we gobbled the first batch up…. It also has a place in my recipe binder in a coveted plastic cover ??
Turned out great! I made a candy cane shaped pastry for the feast of St. Nicholas and this recipe worked perfectly and now I have more in the freezer for Christmas morning too!
This was my first attempt at homemade puff pastry and it turned out perfect. I don’t feel the need to try any other recipes, I’m going to stick with this one! I ended up using all of the puff pastry from this recipe to make homemade sausage rolls.
This recipe is my go to any time I need a puff pastry. Pie, Sausage Rolls, Gallete… super easy to make.
It is so easy, simple and delicious. We loved it, I highly recommend.
I was so intimidated by rough puff and this recipe was so helpful. It was easy to follow and the end result was delicious.
Great simple recipe that can be made with ingredients always on hand. Love these kinds of recipes!
Love anything that makes delicious pastry crusts easier!!
So easy! With this there is no need to ever buy from the store!
This was easy to make and so good! I made a double batch for my sister who just had a baby. We froze some. I made one into sausage rolls and ate some of those and froze a few. Made some pizza rolls. And my sister has been having fun making fruit turnovers with them. A definite hit!!!
This recipe is amazing! I have used it for turnovers and topped a pot pie with it. Both turned out delicious.
Best puff pastry recipe I’ve tried. Perfect everytime, and super easy to prepare. Freezes really well and you cant even tell it was frozen. I often use it as a quiche crust and its lovely!
I’ve never made puff pastry before because it always seemed so intimidating. But this recipe was easy and turned out delicious. ?
So excited to find an easy puff pastry recipe. In the US, most store bought bread and pastries have enriched flour (which I cannot have due to a health condition where I cannot process synthetic folic acid in enriched flours). Puff pastry is one of the few things I haven’t figured out how to make a home (I use organic all-purpose Costco flour, which thankfully is not enriched with folic acid)… Now I can make it! I am doing a happy dance ?
This makes me so happy to hear!
I had used a Pinterest recipe months ago to try to save $ and make my own pastry puff. Big fail! Then I tried my hand at this and I’m in AWE! Meat hand pies, breakfast pies, strawberry jam tarts. I love how versatile it can be and seriously so thankful that it freezes so easily and holds up! Thanks, Kate!
Such an easy recipe and so delicious! I’ve always skipped recipes calling for puff pastry cause I never remember to buy it at the store. Now I don’t have to, I make a batch and keep in the freezer!
