Puff and Flaky Pastry Problem Solving

Give these helpful tips a good read and your puff and flaky pastry will be fault free in the future!

  • Pastry is Hard and Tough

    Too much water has been added to the flour but not enough fat. It is important to keep the pastry cool during rolling and the oven needs to be hot.

  • Pastry Hasn't Risen

    The fat may have been too warm and has blended with the flour instead of remaining in layers. Make sure you rest the pastry sufficiently between rollings.

  • Pastry is Soggy in the Middle

    This is a result of the pastry being undercooked. Don’t place the pastry on too high a shelf in the oven.
