Good Puff Pastry dough?

  • m
  • 5

What kind of puff pastry dough is tasty and buttery? Recently, I was looking for Pepperidge Farms, which I've used in the past, but couldn’t find any. Instead of running around I just bought and used PC brand puff pastry dough in something I made. It was so-so. The texture was good but it tasted pretty bland - didn't have the same buttery nice taste as Pepp Farm brand.

Any recommendations?

  1. I bought some excellent puff from Rahier. Call ahead to see if they have it on the day you need it or if they have some frozen.

        Thanks for the info. I was wondering where to get good puff dough as well. I am assuming they use butter. I have used the PC brand and it was adequate. On the plus side it is made with butter. I believe I have looked at the Pepp Farm and rejected it because it was made with shortening.

          Adequate is how I would describe the PC brand yes. Not overly loaded with flavour though, and I don’t think I’ll be using it again. But yes, it’s made with butter. I didn’t realize Pepp Farm was made with shortening. Very tasty regardless.

            A year or two ago I did an impromptu survey of what you could get and I needed something really good for a dinner party. Rahier is indeed all butter and if I remember correctly fairly reasonably priced for all butter, made in house.

            Just found the old post - 500 gram packages for $5.00 (better factor in inflation as that was over a year ago)
