The Daring Bakers did puff pastry for the September challenge and fashioned them as Vols-au-Vents.
We were given carte blanche on the fillings and boy did I have fun doing this. I had all sorts of plans for savoury ones as well but ended up using all my playing time doing sweet ones with berries, creme fraiche, whipped cream, peaches & custard.
It didn't go completely without a glitch, but you'll have to read the post to see about my butter blues ;)
I promise you making puff pastry is not as hard as you'd think. I thought it was rather fun and relaxing and will definitely be making my own from now on instead of buying.
