Feta puffs

February 15, 2012






In the series "cooking the most difficult and complicated and likely to fail stuff in the book", I present pâte feuilletée, French for puff pastry dough! I had made it once when I was eleven or twelve, and it went out okay. I decided to make it again a few nights ago, following this recipe. The folding was intricate, because my kitchen is so warm that the butter kept melting and seeping through the flour mixture. But it went fine in the end. I looked in my fridge and decided to make small "chaussons" (I guess the English term would be puff) with feta cheese. I mixed it with olive oil and some parsley. All of this went in the oven for thirteen minutes at 415 degrees Farenheit. The recipe above said 20 to 30 minutes, but I decided to go with my gut because somehow I knew the kitchen would disappear in a cloud of black smoke and have calcined remains in the oven that then I would have to scrape off the aluminum foil I coat my baking sheets with (I don't use paper, even though it sure would look nicer in pictures. Aluminum doesn't stick even without any fat!). I baked them for fifteen minutes instead.
The result was, well, purely delicious, vanity set aside. As I had some dough left, I did some "pains au chocolat", or as we say in Toulouse, "chocolatine", filling them with Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips. A sweet end to a delicious meal!



PS: wonder why there are no nicer pictures, perhaps on a plate? Well, because these little delights didn't last long enough!
