There is only one inviolable rule for preparing quick or any other kind of puff pastry: Make sure it’s cool in your kitchen or the dough will turn into a gooey mess. That said, mixing the dough is no more complicated than making any other pastry dough — in fact, you can do part or all of the mixing in the food processor. Keep a ruler handy as you roll or you might end up with an odd-shaped piece of dough that’s difficult to manoeuvre.
