My "puff" pastry (store bought) did not puff, except for the very centers which popped straight up, making them look like little boobs! Not sure what went wrong.

Easy recipe with rave reviews. Question: I make my own puff pastry. Am I supposed to use a 17.3 oz block of puff pastry or half a 17.6 oz package, which is usually two sheets of 8.6 oz?
