Puff is a professional confectioneryThe name of all of us known puff pastry. Puff pastry can be cooked for a certain number of turns (up to five), and the higher this number, the tastier and better the dough is considered. At the heart of this type of test (and it happens yeast, soda or unleavened) lies the oil. It should be almost as much as flour. The main thing is to correctly distribute the oil in the test. It must be spread as it is rolled out, and the dough should not break through in any case, so that it does not flow out. First, it creates inconvenience when working with it, and secondly, during baking, the dough can dry out from above, and the lower layers can remain unbaked.
Puff pastry at the same time needs to be rolled outvery thin. This is difficult, so very often the dough is torn. Everything is accumulated only by practice. However, there are also mandatory methods for preparing puffs. When making puff pastry, the water must be added gradually. It should be absolutely equally impregnated with water. The dough is rolled into a square shape, and the wraps are made so that on one side they are narrow, and on the other, wide. To prevent oil from escaping the seams, it is necessary to roll the dough constantly perpendicular to the narrow edges. Doing every two turns, you should give the test "to rest" for ten minutes. The dough will turn out good if it is done in a cool place. Some cooks even leave a puff on ice before baking.
