So, what is pastry butter?

Pastry butter is a type of high-fat butter that is specifically designed for use in pastry making. This type of butter is different from regular butter as it has a higher percentage of fat, which makes it more pliable and easier to work with. Pastry butter is often used in laminated doughs such as croissants, puff pastry, and Danish pastries, as it creates the perfect flaky texture that these baked goods are known for. Its unique properties come from the specific blend of cream and water used to create it, which produces a butter that is perfect for creating delicate, layered pastries.
