Well, I can check one thing off the resolution list. I made croissants! Here are some things I figured out in this baking marathon.
Dedication is one of the requirements of making croissants from scratch.
Teamwork & communication is another requirement when making croissants, especially with two small children present.
Pounding butter with a rolling pin is in fact cathartic, and cheaper than therapy.
I am not a very good roller. It’s particularly difficult to roll dough out length wise without increasing it’s width. Any tips?
A louder timer might ensure the croissants don’t get too brown in the late stage of baking. Well, maybe next time.
Twenty hours is the amount of time it took me to create these fine French delicacies.
Excuse us, we like to eat our croissants standing in the kitchen with poorly groomed hair.
