  • Mix all-purpose flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the cold butter in pieces and mix on low speed, with the flat beater attached, until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add ice water and mix at low speed until it comes together to a dough. DON'T KNEAD.
  • Use your hands to form it into a square. Warp with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Place the dough on a floured working surface and roll it into a long rectangle, using a rolling pin. First, fold the upper third into the middle, then fold the lower third into the middle on top of the other so that you have 3 layers. Use your hand to stretch and form into a nice square. Turn the dough 90° and repeat these steps three times. Use more flour if needed to prevent the dough from sticking.
  • Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes up to two days.
  • If you are ready to make your recipe, place the puff pastry on a floured working surface and roll it out into a thin square or rectangle (as needed).



  • How long can I store homemade puff pastry? For up to two days in the fridge.
  • Can I freeze it? Yes, you can freeze it for up to 3 months. Allow to defrost overnight in the refrigerator or up to a few hours at room temperature.
No-Fail Puff Pastry Rules
  1. Always work with cold dough and cold butter (plant-based)! 
  2. Don’t overwork/over-knead your dough!
