Puff pastry is usually baked - it needs the dry heat to become crisp. I can't imagine it would work on the stove top with any sort of pan. Good luck.

In fact puff pastry rises because of steam created between the layers of the dough. All ingredients are cold and put in the oven ice cold creating steam from the butter to separate the layers.

Like C Sangueza said, it needs to bake to brown. Is there a reason you want to cook it in a pressure cooker? Are you putting it over something you've cooked in there (like a pot pie thingy)? Or are you in a kitchen with limited supplies?

Hi Lisanne! I don't have an oven in my current place! Since you can bake a cake in a cooker (although not so well), i was wondering if it will work with puff pastry as well.

Do you have a toaster oven? Tricky but it might work. What do you think C Sangueza and Lisanne?

Consensus seems to be nix on the puff pastry in pressure cooker.
But there ARE ways to make bread and fruit cobbler (using a biscuit like topping) in pressure cooker.

Do you by chance have an outdoor gas grill? I use mine as an oven all year round. Recently, I used it to bake bread from the 5 Minute Artisnal Bread and it worked perfectly.
