Puff pastry brioche


As the classic brioche, this recipe of puff pastry brioche made with fine Charentes Poitou PDO butter is round, soft and melting. The puff pastry also gives it this crispy and airy texture we love so much in a croissant! I made it with milk sourdough, bit it’s not essential.

Dough preparation

This recipe requires a bit of organization in order to respect the resting times. As the brioche dough have to rest in cold place for 12 hours, don’t hesitate to prepare it the night before. After “tourage” (laminating the dough), add another hour, and after shaping, 2 hours for proofding and rising before baking.
