Any luck finding all-butter puff pastry in Pas/Glendale stores?

Hello, all,

Has anybody in the Glendale/Pasadena areas found a source for all-butter puff pastry dough, since I am the czarina of poor time management and will probably never master making it myself? Thanks for your help.

  1. Trader Joe's has it in the frozen section. It's a very good product. In fact I just put an apple tart I made with it in the oven.

    Also, Jon's Market carries a couple of varieties of it that I have yet to try.

      Thanks so much for the information!

        Gelson's carries it, as well. Also filo as well as the puff pastry.

        Heck, most Ralph's have it.

          Most supermarkets do indeed carry puff pastry -- but it's more often than not Pepperidge Farm or some other brand that is made with partially-hydrogenated vegetable shortening and not with butter -- the difference in taste is quite noticeable. Until Trader Joe's began stocking it recently, your only options were Surfas and Nicole's and probably a few other places.

      2. I've always purchased my all-butter puff pastry from Nicole's Gourmet Foods in South Pasadena. Nicole sells the puff pastry in large, unfolded sheets. Trader Joe's just recently started carrying it but I haven't tried it yet.
