Have you ever just had a full blown hissy fit? As an adult?
I wanted to make these pufflets so badly because I knew they would taste great, I just knew it. It started out fine, the dough had the consistency it was supposed to and I plopped it down in plastic wrap to chill. It chilled in the fridge from Sunday morning until last night when I took it out to prepare the pufflets. I rolled out the dough thinly, still inside the plastic wrap. After it was rolled out I stuck back in the fridge to chill for another half hour before I cut into it. When I took it out and tried to cut into (even after all the chilling) it stuck to everything - like some horrible paste. I stuck in back in the fridge and tried again after more chilling. This did not help either, it was still pasty and sticky and stuck to the plastic wrap and my hands and the pasty cutter. A string of expletives flew from my mouth and I had a mini-hissy fit in the kitchen. I couldn't have a full on hissy fit because my husband was on the phone with his mother and I didn't want her to think I had lost my mind. Instead I wrapped the whole sticky mess in aluminum foil and threw it in the garbage can. But not before taking a picture. To soothe myself I ate some of the Bonne Maman strawberry jam intended for the pufflets, it helped a little.I will attempt this again, maybe when it's below freezing outside and my time is not limited to a Monday night. Thank you Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes for the selection, I just know they're delicious when made properly!
