|To make good puff paste
you must have all the ingredients cold. Puff
paste should be made in a cool place as it is necessary to keep the
paste cold during the whole time of preparation. Avoid making the paste
on a warm, damp day.
The baking of puff paste is almost
important as the rolling.The oven
must be very hot, with the greatest
heat at the bottom, so that the
paste will rise before it browns. If the paste should begin to scorch,
need quick cooling; place a pan of cold water in the oven.
