Flaky Yam Puff

This is a mid-autumn festival yummies, guess what? I misses this so much, I made it in this time of the year, just for me haha....
I love yam and the texture of this flaky pastry. The flaky pastry needs a bit of work to roll and roll but it is all worth it.....^^ when you see the end result. It is even more worth it when you eat it.

Part 1
Shortening Dough
Flour 160 g
Icing Sugar 24 g
Shortening 40 g
Water 88 g

Part 2
Flaky Dough
Flour 144 g
Shortening 88 g
Yam paste As desired


1. Mix all the ingredients in group 1 and set aside.

2. Mix all the ingredients in group 2.

3. Roll shortening dough into rectangular shape and wrap in the flaky dough.
Apply dusting flour when necessary and rest the dough for 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, divide the filling (e.g.: red bean paste or lotus paste)
into 30g each and shape round. (I use yam filling here.)

5. Use rolling pin to flatten the dough and roll into a Swiss roll.
Rest the dough for another 5 minutes and repeat the process.

6. Remove both edges and divide the dough into 18-20 pieces.
Flatten using rolling pin and wrap in the filling.
Seal edge facing downwards.

7. Bake at 180°C for about 20-25 minutes till cooked through but not golden brown.

** You can make your own yam filling, it is a bit hard to get a ready made in the market.
