Ingredients

  • 4 cups white flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 18 ounces cold butter
  • 1 cup cold water

Instructions

  • 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.

  1. 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 ??

    1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. I was so intimidated by rough puff and this recipe was so helpful. It was easy to follow and the end result was delicious.

  4. 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!!!

  5. 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!

  6. I’ve never made puff pastry before because it always seemed so intimidating. But this recipe was easy and turned out delicious. ?

  7. 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 ?
