Easy Puff Pastry

Flour - 250 grams

Butter - 200 grams

Egg yolk - 1

Salt - 1/4 teaspoon

vinegar - 2 teaspoons

Cold water - about 100 ml


3-4 Apples

3 plums (optional)

Powdered sugar - 25 gram

Step 1:

Make the quick puff pastry: Place an egg yolk in a measuring cup. add ¼ teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoon of vinegar. Add approximately 100 ml of ice cold water and mix well. In total, we should have 125 ml of liquid. Place in the fridge.

Step 2:

Sift 250 grams of flour onto the table. Grate 200 grams of frozen butter or margarine into the flour, mixing the butter with flour frequently.

Step 3:

Make a well, and pour in the liquid and mix. Don’t knead the dough. Fold it onto itself: lift the sides and fold towards the middle, creating layers. Gather any pieces of dough left on the table, and add them to the dough.

Step 4:

Shape into a rectangular, wrap with plastic wrap or place in a plastic bag. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. It is best to refrigerate the dough for 10-12 hours before using.

Step 5:

Make the filling: Combine 600 ml of water and 300 grams of sugar in a saucepan. Stir just until the sugar dissolves. Bring to boil.

Step 6:

You could use just apples, or use both apples and plums for extra flavor and color. Cut 3 apples in half. Remove the core. Slice into 2-3 mm thick pieces. Do the same with 3 plums.

Step 7:

Blanch the apples in the boiling syrup in batches. Remove as soon as it comes back to boil. Transfer to a plate, and cool. Repeat the same with plums.

Step 8:

Remove the puff pastry from the fridge, and roll 3 mm thick. Cut into 3-4 cm wide, 25 cm long strips.

Step 9:

Arrange the apple and plum slices in an alternating pattern, so that they alternate and overlap each other.

Step 10:

Roll into a beautiful rose, and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for 20-25 minutes.

Step 11:
