PUFF PASTRY BISCUITS...from a scratch!

puff pastry biscuits.jpg


I like to have somehing light and salty with my morning cuppa, and usually stick to bakery puffs or salted biscuits, have been looking for a good salty biscuit recipe for ages but believe me I have not been able to come across any, today I chanced upon Artisan sweets where what caught my eye was how to make puff pastry in 20 seconds!, now that got me thinking, no.... running to the kitchen that very instant, and boy was I pleased!, these were the best that I ever made, though not really puff pastry but some darn good salted bicuits.My dad-in-law is diabetic and he always says that I bake all sweet things and never something he can wholeheartedly enjoy, after a bite of these he was ecstatic!,


Do give these yummy little gems a try, they are well worth the effort I promise...AND no more bakery puffs for me, from now on I am baking my own!


I adapted from her Quick puff pastry recipe


INGREDIENTS-



  • Flour-2 cups

  • Butter/Shortening-150gms

  • Salt-1 tsp

  • Chilled water as required

  • Cumin seeds-as required

  • Carom seeds(ajwain)-as required

  • Egg white-1


Method-


Rub the butter into the flour till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, add enough chilled water to knead into a smooth dough, let rest for 15 mins.Now roll out dough into a large rectangle, dusting the board and rolling pin with flour as required, fold from one side then the other to make a parcel, thus turning it into a smaller rectangle, keep repeating, refer to the tutorial by Artisan sweets and proceed , I wanted something quick, so after repeating this several times and refrigerating once in between, I finally rolled out the dough and cut it into squares with a very sharp knife, brushed with egg white, sprinkled half with cumin seeds and the other half with ajwain, left to chill for another half an hour, then transferred biscuits to a very hot oven(200C), bake for 20 mins. or till fluffy and golden, serve with tea/coffee.These can be sprinkled with sugar and baked like palmiers too for a sweet treat.

I made puff pastry once but it took 6 hours and lots of hard work. Glad you got the same success with a quick recipe. Your biscuits look great.
