Once a year I make Puff pastry dough for Palmiers. It is a huge time commitment so I just don’t  do it any oftener.

All you need it butter, 1/2 stick for this part.

flour, and a pastry cutter.

PNP12BP-7
After you’ve cut the butter into the flour, add water, but only as much as is absolutely necessary.

PNP12BP-9
Just sorta bring the dough together, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

PNP12BP-10
Next you use the rest of the box of butter. set on waxed paper

PNP12BP-12
Between two layers of flour dusted waxed paper flatten with a rolling pin. Yeah, sorta pound it flat. work quickly or you’ll have a bunch of melted butter. If it does get too soft you can always pop it back in the fridge.

PNP12BP-15
Shape it into a 6” square and refrigerate. 

PNP12BP-17
Once the dough and butter have chilled roll the dough into a 9” circle.

PNP12BP-18
Set the butter square on and use a bread scraper thing to lightly score the butter shape. 

PNP12BP-19
Roll out four flaps careful to leave the square.

PNP12BP-20
Place the butter square on.

Then fold the flaps over like and envelope.

PNP12BP-22 With the rolling pin press down at regular intervals over entire surface until it is about 1 inch thick. Then carefully Roll out to a 9 x 20” rectangle. Square it up with your hands as you go.

PNP12BP-24
Fold it in thirds, wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
Repeat five more times on the hour rolling out a 9x20” rectangle. Always fold in thirds the same way.

PNP12BP-37
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
