Mix flour, salt, 50
gram butter and about 300 gram water and knead for 5 minutes. Roll the
dough into a rectangle of 20X30 cm en and leave this in the fridge for
half an hour. Get the rest of butter out of the fridge half an hour
before you will use it. Roll the butter into a rectangular of 12X17
cm (put some flour underneath to make the rolling easy). Put this in
the middle of the dough and fold the dough rectangular around the butter.
Roll the whole mass out again till 20X30cm. Put back in the fridge for
1 hour. Repeat the process three times. Now you can use a part directly
and freeze the rest.
Puff pastry can be
bought ready made and frozen in the supermarket. It is a lot of work
to prepare, but the taste is wonderful and you can make any size you
like. Just prepare one kilogram at the time and put the remainder in
the freezer. Like this, you always have your puff pastry ready. Great
for quiches and puff pastry deserts!
