I don't make my own pastry I buy it. However as it comes in these square sheets there are usually a lot of 'bits' left over. I often roll them up with some jam or honey and bake them but not always.
I needed just a little bit more puff pasty a couple of nights ago and was thinking 'if only I could roll out these bits like I would with cookie dough .... '
Of course there was no reason I couldn't do that, I did and it worked beautifully I popped the left over back in the freezer, I'm not sure if it will refreeze nicely but thought it was worth a try.
The no waste light bulb was shining brightly that night! I can not believe I had never though to do this before. Have you ever had one of those moments?
