I made puff pastry dough, but I figured I've added too much butter to it and now that it is in the oven, the butter has melted and covered the dough! (I need your advice for the next time) What should I have done to fix it? Does adding flour make it better?
I've had this happen to me before. If it helps anyone else, I just took mine out and drained the butter from the tray and continued baking. I did it twice. I also had to bake them a little longer, like 10 minutes longer than the recipe called for until their color was just right and the tops nice and crispy. I had no hope but man... They were absolutely amazing. I made apple - feta hand pies.
Sidenote: i know for a fact that my oven doesn't get that hot, i need to get a thermometer for it. Secondly, I used more butter than called for. I didn't have a scale and I only had a giant 500g block so I had to eyeball my cut. So look out for those variables for sure.
