And by that title, I don’t mean that your French croissant is going to be ready in an hour, although this is something I’d like to work on maybe in the future. However, for now, I can tell you that you don’t have to proof the croissant all night in the fridge.
From start to finish, this French croissant will take around 8 hours, you must be thinking how is that quick. Well if you are making croissants for the first time, you need to know that mostly croissants are made in one day and baked the next day.
So instead of keeping the dough in the fridge to proof overnight, now you can make it in the evening and have it with your breakfast in the morning or even snack on it the same day. One thing for sure, that making French Croissant is not difficult at all.
Making French Croissant.
These French croissants turned out gorgeous and made my house smells heavenly and buttery. I love the smell of freshly baked croissants but for you to have a flavorful croissant, you have to use a good quality butter, since butter is what gives a croissant those layers, making it flaky and ridiculously delicious.
How to freeze the croissant.
You can make mini croissant and fill them with chocolate, or cheese. You can even freeze the croissants after shaping them to bake later. If you decided to freeze the croissant after shaping them, do not brush the croissants with eggs. Place the shaped croissants on a sheet and freeze for 40 minutes. When the croissants are frozen, place them in a Ziploc bag and place in the freezer again, this step will avoid the croissants from sticking together.
