A multi-layered pastry, which is made by combining thin layers of pastry dough with a very thin layers of butter (or other solid fat) between each layer of dough. The dough is then rolled and folded many times prior to baking.

Puff Pastry may be used as a food wrap for appetizers and small sandwiches or to make allumettes, croissants, napoleons, and palmiers.
