Baking with Puff Pastry

If you have never used puff pastry before there are a few baking tips you need to know before making these heart shaped puff pastry cookies:

  1. Always make sure that you have preheated your oven. Puff pastry needs to have even heat when baking.
  2. A nonstick or dark glazed baking sheet may bake faster, so adjust your time and check pastry while baking.
  3. If bubbles appear on the surface while baking puff pastry, prick with a fork or toothpick to deflate them.
  4. Always flip and place the cut side of the puff pastry down on the baking sheet.
  5. Place pastry on the baking sheet before adding toppings or fillings.
  6. Keep the pastry even by placing parchment paper on top with a smaller cookie sheet.
  7. Puff pastry is done when it’s golden and puffy, not wet and doughy.
  8. Make sure to thaw frozen pastry before using.

Don’t try to shape puff pastry that’s not completely thawed; shaping it while it’s still partly frozen could tear the Puff Pastry sheet. The pastry should unfold easily, but still be cold after thawing. If sheets reach room temperature, return to the fridge to rechill (do not refreeze).

If you are new to puff pastry just test it out a few times until you feel you have made it the way you like. Just follow this puff pastry dessert recipe and use your eyes to decide when they are ready.
