Making croissants from scratch is easy, but time consuming

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Howdy all,

 

 I recently made some yummy croissants from scratch. Yes, it is time consuming and a bit nerve-racking, but soooo worth it. There is nothing more satisfying than a warm, fresh from the oven, honey smothered croissant. You guys should give this a try and just blow your wimin's minds. ROTF.gif

 

You might get lucky, juz sayin' tounge.gif

 

 

Here's the recipe I followed with step by step.

Here's my results:

 

Start with ALOT of butta, good quality butter please. Work it in to a nice square and put in the fridge.

Next comes the dough. It has to rest in the fridge for one hour.

Wrap it up in a nice little package.

Roll and turn, and roll and turn, and roll and turn.

Final roll out for cutting the shapes.

She says those are easy.  Not for me.  Baking and gardening are not my thing.

 

Those are just beautiful!!!

 

Good luck and good smoking.
