Sourdough puff pastry

Has anyone else made sourdough puff pastry? I came across a recipe last week from Farmhouse on Boone and gave it a shot. Aalthough it wasn’t quite traditional, it gave me great results (I have a blog post with more details here) but I’m interested in trying some different recipes to compare. It never even occurred to me to make puff pastry with my sourdough starter!

I read the recipe and I don’t understand why one would add leavening to puff pastry. The article seemed to equate danish laminated dough with puff pastry. That is my primary question.

…many times, but puff pastry or pate feuilletée makes no sense. The paste portion of pate feuilletée is literally paste (flour, water, maybe a bit of salt and lemon juice). Calling viennoiserie puff pastry is just confusing. But no matter, your turnovers look delicious.
