Croissant Recipe

Croissants originate from France they are a delicious pastry that is most commonly enjoyed at breakfast time. Croissants are best served warm and with jam. This hub will show you how to make croissants. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Croissant Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4oz Flour
  • 1/4oz Salt
  • 6oz Margarine
  • 1/2 Pint Milk and Water
  • 1oz Yeast
  • 1/2oz Sugar

Croissant Method:

  1. Warm the flour and add the salt
  2. Melt 1 1/2oz of the margarine, add it to the milk and water and warm it
  3. Cream the yeast and the sugar
  4. Make a well in the centre of the flour and mix to a light dough with the yeast and liquid
  5. Knead lightly and set to rise for about 1/2 hour. Then knead lightly on a floured board and roll out into an oblong
  6. Place one third of the remaining margarine in small heaps on the top of the two thirds of the dough, then fold in three, turning the bottom third up and bringing the top third over it
  7. Seal the ends with the rolling pin and give one half turn
  8. Roll again into an oblong, and repeat with the two remaining portions of the margarine
  9. Roll the dough out very thinly and cut into squares then into triangles
  10. Starting at the longest side, roll up each triangle, finishing with the point, and curling the ends round to form a crescent
  11. Prove for about 10 minutes on a greased tin
  12. Brush each of the croissants gently with a beaten egg and milk, and bake in a hot oven (450*F) for 10-15 minutes

Hopefully you should end up with some wonderfully tasty croissants.
