You can buy a pre-made puff pastry, but if you want to try to make your own this is how.

 

The puff pastry:

 

  1. In a food processor or stand mixer mix all the dried ingredients together. Add gradually the water. Pour the dough into a bowl and form a ball without needing. Wrap and let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Lay the butter between two parchment paper, roll the butter into a block. Put it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Roll your dough on a silicone sheet or baking paper. Create a big square, put your butter on top, and fold your dough on the butter. 
  4.  Form the dough into a rectangle and roll it out. Fold the top third of the dough onto the middle of the dough and the bottom third on top of that
  5. Give the dough a quarter turn and roll it out again. Folding the dough like in « 5. » Repeat the process 2 times.
  6. Wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes before using.
