Why it Works: Puff Pastry
Question: How is puff pastry like a jelly sandwich? Answer: Both are made from layers. Puff pastry has two separate parts: dough and fat (usually butter). The pastry is made by first rolling the dough into a thin sheet. Next, a sheet of cold butter about half the size of the dough is placed on top and the dough is folded over to create a sandwich. This sandwich is then re-rolled and re-folded numerous times, each time gaining layers of dough and butter. During baking, the butter melts and its water (butter is 20% water) turns to steam, pushing up each layer of dough as it rises. The result is a dramatic, flaky pastry.
