GBBO Challenge Week 2

This was Paul Hollywood’s technical challenge for the bakers and like many of the contestants, I had never heard of these. They are made from puff pastry and so involved a lot of folding the pastry and then chilling it in the fridge, in order to get the layers of butter and pastry right.

I never normally bake with real butter (I usually use sunflower spread) so I thought these tasted quite rich. Given the length of time the arlettes took to make, what with chilling the pastry, I probably wouldn’t make these again!

Here’s Paul’s recipe if anyone has, as it says ‘over 2 hours’ of preparation time;
