A room-temperature atmosphere will cause the puff pastry to wilt and become floppy. That, in turn, will make the layers stick, and render it almost impossible to work with. If your puff pastry gets too soft, return it to the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes before moving forward.
“Why is my puff pastry not crispy?”
The thickness of the dough also plays a role in getting puff pastry to rise. If the dough has been rolled too thin, it will rise but not enough to get that lovely, crispy flake. And if the dough has been rolled too thick it will be weighted down and doughy instead of light and puffy.
