There are two things that I love to eat; bread (any kind) and treats that contain any kind of dough (cakes, croissants, pains au chocolat, pancakes, doughnuts etc…). The other day I decided to make croissants but I realized that this was something very difficult due to the whole procedure! And then… i thought to try and use ready made puff pastry… You should try it, it is very easy and tasty…but you have to buy the best quality puff pastry in order to get this buttery flavor that will wake up all your senses!!!
1 package good quality fresh puff pastry
1 egg yolk beaten with 2 tablespoons milk
1. Unpack the puff pastry ( usually there are two sheets in a package) and cut into 6 squares. Then divide them in the middle, creating 12 triangles.
2. Roll the dough towards the tip of the triangle and bend it to create the crescent shape.
3. Place the croissants on a tray covered with baking paper and paint them with beaten egg and milk.
4. Bake them in a pre heated oven ( 210 C ) for 15-20 minutes until they are golden and puffy!!!
Enjoy them with marmelade, chocolate or with any other filling you like!
PS: I prefer them with dulche de leche…so tempting!
