There are a lot of breakfast pastries out there. But, croissants are the best. Here’s why: they’re light, fluffy, and buttery. They’re perfect for any time of day. Plus, they’re really easy to make at home! In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make croissants from scratch. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!
So, what makes a croissant so special? It’s all in the dough. Croissant dough is made with lots of butter. This gives it a light and fluffy texture. The dough is also rolled out thinly and folded several times. This creates layers of dough that separate when baked. These layers give the croissant its flaky texture.
Now that you know what makes a croissant so special, let’s get started on making them! The first step is to make the dough. Start by mixing together flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Then, add in melted butter and eggs. Mix until everything is well combined.
Next, turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about ten minutes. Then, place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let it rise in a warm place for an hour. After it has risen, punch down the dough and roll it out into a rectangle.
Now it’s time to add the butter! Place a sheet of parchment paper over the dough and then add a layer of cold butter. Fold the dough over the butter and then roll it out again into a rectangle. Repeat this process two more times. Then, place the dough in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
When the dough is chilled, it’s time to shape the croissants. Cut the dough into triangles and then roll them up from the wide end to the point. Place the croissants on a greased baking sheet and let them rise for 30 minutes.
Finally, it’s time to bake! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and then bake the croissants for 15-20 minutes, or until they’re golden brown. Let them cool on a wire rack and then enjoy!
So there you have it! Croissants are the perfect breakfast pastry and they’re really easy to make at home. Give it a try and let us know how it goes! We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do
