  • Dough Folding

There are two ways of folding dough method, namely:
Single Fold
1.    Milled dough forming a rectangle with a thickness of 1 cm.
2.    Fold the dough into 3 layers.
Double Fold or also known as Four-Fold
1.    Milled dough forming a long shape with a thickness of 1 cm.
2.    Fold the dough into 4 layers, that is by folding the sides of the edges towards the center.
To make puff pastry is required 6 times single-fold or 4 times double fold and each time will do the polishing and folding of the dough should be rested in the freezer for 20 minutes. Each start of the polishing is always rotated 90o from the previous direction.
In fact, besides the 2 methods above, there is also the Dutch method, but it is not recommended to be done in tropical countries except in a very cool AIR conditioned room. In the Dutch method folding fat is outside the dough. Because it is outside the dough, if the weather is warm like in Indonesia which is a tropical climate is very risky fat becomes very mushy and melted so that it becomes sticky and difficult to do.
