Dried Tomatoes and Cream Cheese

The dough should be completely thawed so that it is pliable enough to roll out, but still cold. It’s best to let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight rather than leaving it on the kitchen counter at room temperature.

If the dough is too warm, it won’t rise enough. To ensure a beautiful puff pastry, place the formed flowers in the refrigerator for half an hour.

The oven should be hot (around 180-200°C/375-400°F), but not so hot that the dough squares burn. If you find that they are browning too quickly, you can loosely place a sheet of foil on top.
