Make up Procedure for Pastry
Whether you are using EOI Puff Pastry Rolls or EOI Flex Pastry above, roll out puff pastry to a length of 60cm from left to right. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of pastry then roll up similar to a scroll. Then cut the scroll into 10mm slices like you would for cookies & pin out each piece to fit the tins or foils.
Flex puff pastry is suitable for freezing in a baked or unbaked condition.
Points of importance:
- Turns may be given to dough immediately after mixing if required.
- Cover the dough with a plastic sheet during rest periods.
- Cut out pastry goods should be rested at least 15 minutes prior to baking.
- Adjust level of water in Group 1 depending on flour strength.
- More or less turns may be required depending on amount of mixing after the addition of the Flex.
- In very cold or very hot weather, water temperature should be adjusted to “condition” the flex dough. Flex pastry dough that finish between 20°C – 26°C give even lift.
