Puff Pastry dough is often referred to as PÃ¢te FeuilletÃ©e or leafed pastry because it has many leaves or layers. Puff pastry is the finest of doughs. It is crisp, buttery, flaky and especially light. It makes a perfect wrapping for a variety of savory and sweet dishes. iT's made with care and love, by first enclosing a "butter block" in the dough, which is then folded and rolled out numerous times to create hundreds of alternating thin layers of pastry and butter.
