The variety that I can get from the supermarket here in Australia is the sheet variety. They make it super easy to use, you just have to be careful when removing it from the packet that you detach it from the sheet in front of it GENTLY to avoid snapping it. It’s happened to me more times than I’d care to admit.
The other variety needs to be thawed out before it can be rolled. I’ve heard that it’s also easy to use. You will get longer sheets with this kind.
Is puff pastry normally vegan?
You may be surprised to learn that most store-bought puff pastry is vegan-friendly. I would, however, always double-check the packet to ensure that you haven’t picked up a butter-based puff pastry. That’s typically the only caveat.
Butter is a more expensive ingredient, so most puff pastry is made with margarine. Yes, it’s not a health product, but sometimes it’s okay to treat ourselves.
It’s become my go-to for making delicious baked goods in a hurry. I’ve used it for both sweet and savoury creations. It’s a great product to use when you have a few people over or want to take something that looks fancy to a party.
I typically take a quick glance at what I have in the kitchen and whip something up! That’s how some of the recipes you see below were created 😉
