Cooking method

  • I saw these croissants photos from Lights Luciole and so they "hooked" me that I could not walk past !!!!!!!! For which to her the BIGGEST THANKS! Well, I decided to try it!
  • Get ready, chilled Pierre Herme French Puff Pastry (Basic Recipe) from the refrigerator.
  • Roll it out into a flat rectangle about 4 - 5 mm thick ..

  • Cut the dough into wide triangles.
  • Take one triangle from the side of the wide base, make a small incision. You can put a piece of chocolate, berries from jam, or leave it just as it is. I did the chocolate version.

  • Give the finished croissant the shape of a crescent, that is, move the ends slightly towards each other.
  • Place croissants on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. And let them rest for 1 hour. During this time, they will increase in volume.
  • Brush all over with yolk. You can sprinkle with nuts or almond petals.
  • Heat the oven to 220 ° C.
  • Bake crescents for 5 minutes at 220 ° C, then lower the temperature to 190 ° C and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Make sure they do not burn.
  • The finished croissants will be very soft. Use a spatula to place them on the wire shelf and let cool completely.
  • Ready-made and chilled croissants, of your choice, can be glazed: mix 2 tbsp. l. powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp. lemon juice and brush over the baked goods. It must be cooled down, otherwise the glaze will simply be absorbed.

Yeast puff pastry is always a great baked product. Fomka, you've got the most beautiful and delicate croissants. I like it very much, but repeating the kneading dough within 4 hours is almost a feat. And as you want.
Pierre Herme nervously smokes on the sidelines !!
lungwort!, Thank you! Need to try! The main thing is not to forget about time and rolling!

Made with chocolate.
The yummy is incredible. BUT! SO LITTLE!!!!

The portion of the dough must be increased 4 times, otherwise, because of the 8 pieces, you shouldn't go in. Rather, it's worth it, but they end in 2 minutes.

In general, thank you, thank you and thank you again !!!!! And then my little one loves croissants, but somehow I didn't get to them all. But then it turned out that the croissant in the store was already 5 UAH per piece. The son was depressed (mom's pies and buns are good, but the hottsa is croissants and so big as in a stall. Bagels are not rolled.) Sonulia is absolutely happy and hints at the continuation of the banquet.
Elena, I'm very glad that my recipe has finally been tested !!!! It turned out such ruddy beauties! I agree - there are few of them, but they are big !!!!! Good health to your son!
fomca, just went in today and looked and took it in bookmarks! very good!
