Learning As I Chop

Looks Like I Learned As I Chopped

Posted in Tips by R @ Learning As I Chop on February 18, 2011

Last month, I decided to attempt my first potpie. The recipe introduced me to a new friend – puff pastry – and I did my best to navigate the challenge. However I kind of knew something wasn’t right when the pastry sunk into the dish. So when I saw a potpie on a different blog, I immediately recognized where I went wrong. In the effort of transparency, and because you probably already see the problem, I admit that I failed to unfold the pastry. Oh man, how embarrassing. I’m willing to bet, though, that I’m not the first novice to make this mistake. As I cooked my second pie tonight, I therefore decided to create a small tutorial. Puff pastry in pictures. Enjoy!

1. Defrost the puff

2. Unfold the puff

3. Cut some slits and egg the puff

4. And voila!
