Laminated Pastries Or Puff Pastries - Standard Recipe

List of Laminated Pastries and Puff Pastries with Recipe Card

Laminated dough is a culinary preparation consisting of many thin layers of dough separated by butter, produced by repeated folding and rolling. Such types of dough are referred to as the pastry of a thousand leaves and they are also called puff pastry.

And its rich and crisp layers are light enough to be airborne and its a flaky miracle of levitation. The rising of puff pastry is truly a magical performance which requires a number of steps. During baking, water in the butter vaporizes and expands, causing the dough to puff up and separate, while the lipids in the butter essentially fry the dough, resulting in a light, flaky product.

Below are a few examples of laminated or puff pastries:
