“How do you make a lemon puff?"/"Chase it round the garden.”

A lemon puff riddle is:

Q: How do you make a lemon puff?
A: Chase it round the garden.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2011.

“How do you make a cheese puff?"/"Chase it around the block,” “How do you make a cream puff?"/"Chase it around the block,” “How do you make an apple puff?"/"Chase it around the garden” and “How do you make a potato puff?"/"Chase it around the garden” are similar riddles.


Wikipedia: Puff pastry
Puff pastry, also known as pâte feuilletée, is a flaky light pastry made from a laminated dough composed of dough (détrempe) and butter or other solid fat (beurrage). The butter is put inside the dough (or vice versa), making a paton which is repeatedly folded and rolled out before baking.
