Easy to use and bake
We use this pastry a lot for both sweet and savoury dishes. Makes making sausage rolls so simple. And for an apple pie... it unrolls so easily, pop it on a plate, trim round the plate, fill with apples, cut the extra pastry in to strips, lattice the top, sprinkle lightly with demerara sugar and you have a perfect pie. EASY
DO NOT BUY THIS
If I could give this zero I would. It sticks to the paper like glue, comes off in clumps has the weirdest consistency ever even the bit i managed to use for the bottom of my pie went all bready and gross.
Ok puff pastry
So I was looking for a alcohol free puff pastry as I found out just roll has alcohol. It definitely is not as good as just roll. You have to work with it as soon as you take out of the fridge otherwise it gets super soft and impossible to work with. I made sausage rolls with it and it came out ok. It didn't puffed as much and it wasn't that light and fluffy. But it tasted ok and not that bad as other reviews mentioned. Overall I think it has to be cheaper considering the quality.
Like heated up old blu-tack
Terrible product, imagine the consistency of heated up old blu-tack. Imagine being so annoyed with a product that you took time out of your day to log on to your Tesco account and complain about puff pastry.. THAT is how bad this was 🙈
Was a substitution and very pleased with it. Used
Was a substitution and very pleased with it. Used for a chicken pie and with what was left over made some raspberry jam pastries which soon got eaten.
Do not buy
Would not come off the backing paper - bought three packs to make Turkey & leek pies for friends coming over. Hugely disappointed, it was just a sticky mess. Managed to get a couple of packs of Co-op's own brand from the local shop - it was much better. Do not buy!
Very very disappointed even before I've baked it. Trying to open the roll of pastry is a challenge in itself. It was to sticky to handle. One packet was just a soggy mess and stuck to the paper which tore. Opened immediately once out of the fridge one packet at a time. Never had this happen in the past.
My score is really NO stars!!!!
Wanted to give it no stars but wasn't allowed! Received as as substitute for Jus-roll, will be ticking the no substitutes box in future! Despite following instructions to the letter pastry would not come off backing paper consequently sausage rolls leaked, which they have never done before in my 60+ years of baking! This product is not fit for purpose!
What's not to like?
Did the job for me and made perfect sausage rolls. No problem unrolling the pastry, cooked evenly and the end result was a tasty flaky sausage roll
Not as good as Jusroll
