Puff pastry is fun to make from scratch—for me. But I’ve been doing it for thirty years. For those less experienced (or short on time), there is nothing wrong with buying ready made puff pastry. But BEWARE! It is not ready to use straight from the store. It should be defrosted slowly in the refrigerator overnight. The layers of butter and dough are delicate, Unfolding and rolling it out too soon will cause cracking, which will screw up the puff-potential.
