This is just too easy! Use in any recipe calling for puff pastry. :) If you would like to try making this dough the authentic, old fashioned way, try Puff Pastry (Danish Pastry Dough)


  1. Using a food processor, pulse butter into flour until it resembles crumbs. pulse in sour cream just until a ball forms and it just begins to hold together, being careful not to over-mix.
  2. Roll out and fold over in three sections (like folding a business letter). Repeat 2-3 times to get the layers of puff pastry.
  3. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes before using. Let sit for a few minutes or pound with rolling pin to get it pliable.

Very easy, tastes good. Isn't the right texture to replace our usual puff pastry. We want to try the authentic version next. Made for PRMR.

This worked well. I made my Chicken Pot Pie Soup with them. It is easier than making them the old fashioned way, and cheaper than buying the frozen ones. Made and Reviewed for Photo Tag. Thanks :)
