Welcome to Keelia’s Kitchen!
I will share my mishaps and successes in the kitchen…bare with me, I am not a professional.
My favorite Foodie blog is How Sweet It Is. When I came across the croissant recipe, I couldn’t wait to try it. It was definitely much more difficult and time consuming than I thought. The process took nearly 15 hours!!
I had great confidence in myself. I followed each step as directed. I’m not sure where I went wrong…
But somewhere within that 15 hours I made some kind of mistake…because my “croissants” didn’t quite turn out as expected.
First I gathered all of my ingredients (see link to recipe at end of post)
I used a Kitchen Aid mixer to make the dough
After the dough was made, I cleared and cleaned off a large area of counter space and rolled the dough out.
Cut the dough into triangles using a pizza cutter.
Placed them on the baking sheet
and brushed with egg mixture before baking
I wish you could have seen my excitement when I took them out the oven!!
Perfect! Or maybe not…Looks more like a crescent roll than a croissant…Why isn’t it flaky?
I think I’ll stick to semi-homemade and use pre-made dough instead.
Better luck next time!
