Cheats Puff Pastry

 Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This is one of my mothers cheat recipes for when she needs puff pastry and doesn't have any frozen on hand. It's quick and ready to use straight away. 

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Plain Flour

2. Frozen Butter
3. Salt
4. Water

Bismillah, let's start!

Place 6 ounces of plain flour into a bowl.

Grate 4 ounces of frozen butter (this is just a block of butter that has been in the freezer until frozen), and a pinch of salt. Take a knife and toss the butter into the flour. This is so the butter pieces are coated with flour. 

Add a few tablespoons of very cold water and put a little in at a time and mix, until you form a dough. 

 Once you have a firm dough, place onto a floured surface and bring together into a ball.

The dough can be rolled out and is ready to use straight away but can be frozen for later use.
