Making puff pastry from scratch is not an easy task to undertake. It is a labor and time oppressive endeavor.

The right rolling and folding, along with the moisture in the butter, creates steam which causes the dough to puff and isolate into the flaky layers that the pastry is known for. Some chef's advise in any place from thirty minutes to two hours chilling time in the middle of rolling and folding. reconsider that the roll, fold and chill process is done four times, you need to block off two to eight hours to make puff pastry.
