Creating a rich, tender and buttery puff pastry can be a laborious and quite time-intensive task, due to the pastry’s many layers.
If, like many, you don’t have hours to spend folding, rolling and turning, there are lots of ready- to- roll options available. BAKO NW stock a delicious range from Pukka Pies, prepared using a French method to give you at least 144 delicate layers of light pastry which can only be described as puff pastry perfection.
This week BAKO North Western brings you some puff pastry recipe ideas, sweet and savoury, which can easily be created with ready-to-roll pastry shortcut sheets, or pre-sheeted rolls from Pukka Pie pastry.
