After my last attempt at French pastry I checked out Sherry Yard's "The Secrets of Baking" and decided to take it a step further and make croissants. Real Croissants. They were a lot of work and a bit more difficult than the Danish but it was definitely a user friendly recipe and worth all the effort!
A neat trick she teaches - if you cut an x in the dough it helps you roll it out to the perfect shape.
The butter block - 4 sticks!! It gives you all those flaky layers!
Wrap it up like a present... a warm, buttery, fattening present.
24 hours and several steps later they are ready to rise.
