Any body want to come on over for a little chocolat chaud and some croissants? It's what's for breakfast.
Finally! I solved the mystery of the complicated pastries. They are light, flaky, and buttery - not bread-like last ones but these are the real deal.
Thanks to my pal, K, who sent me this excellent video on how to make croissants, I think I got the hang of it.
As I expected from my earlier near miss, I needed to be much more careful in how I rolled out the dough. I used my Never Wrong to make sure it was rolled to 10 inches by 20 inches. I also made sure that I brushed the extra flour from the dough before I folded it.
I found this extra fun video which explained the process even more. How great is this girl? At first I couldn't place her accent but then I clicked around on her site - she's from Brazil. She is super fun.
In addition to the plain croissants I also made a few apple pastries....
I don't know what you are doing today but I'm sitting around having hot chocolate and croissants.
Happy Saturday everyone!
