You might want to take a look at Plat's recipe for Puffe Paste.
24 - To make puffe-paste. Take a quart of the finest flowre ,and the
whites of three egges, and the yolks of two, & a little cold water,
and so make it into perfect paste: then drive it with a rowling pin
abroad: then put on small peeces of butter, as big as nuts, upon it:
then fold it over: then drive it abroad again: then put small peeces
of button upon it, as you did before: doe this ten times, alwaies
folding the paste, and putting butter between every fold. You may
convey any preetty forced dish, as Florentin, Cherry-tart, Rise, or
Pippins, &c, between two sheets of that paste.
