To Prepare Puff Pastry:
1) Put sifted flour and salt into a mixing bowl and cut the butter into small cubes, drop them into the flour. Add lemon juice and ice-cold water, using a pastry cutter, work and mix the flour to become a soft dough (pastry should not be too damp).
2) Knead dough lightly then roll out on a lightly floured table top into a rectangle.
3) Fold the bottom third up and the lower third down. Give the pastry a quarter turn and repeat the rolling, folding and turning four more times.
4) Wrap pastry in a plastic bag and leave to rest.  Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes in the refrigerator then use as required.
