Laminating Your Layers

The beautiful flaky layers in puff pastry are created by a series of turns, wherein the dough is rolled thin and folded over itself. This process stretches and stacks the butter and dough until there are 729 paper-thin layers. Keep track of the number of turns you give your puff pastry by making a small indentation in the top of the dough each time.
