I would name my favorite type of bread to be croissants.I have always loved them.A fresh croissant has a flaky crust and good flavor.The turkey sandwich is so delicious that it’s hard to decide whether to eat it or not.The perfect accompaniment to mop up sauce and noodles is a croissant.
I buy the pastries once a week.They are usually eaten as a quick breakfast smeared with butter and heated in the microwave when I am in a rush.It is easy to find croissants in the bakery section of a local grocery store.It is rare to find fresh croissants.One donut shop that makes fresh croissants is too far away for me.
I cringe when I say that the croissants I buy from local grocery stores or Walmart are not great without some doctoring.I decided to share this article with people.If there are people like me out there, they will know the struggles of loving croissants but having to settle for old grocery store ones.
Even if you don’t have access to Walmart or mass-produced croissants, you can make them taste delicious and fresh.
Here is the quick recipe to get you started.
Start with your favorite food.I usually buy mine from a local chain of grocery stores, but if I go to Walmart I will buy them even if they aren’t my favorite.There are two types of croissant: large and mini-sized.I like the large ones for sandwiches.For a quick bite for breakfast or a side to spaghetti with meat sauce, the mini-sized ones are ideal.
Place your oven at 400 degrees.I like to use my old cookie sheet to doctor up the store.I line the cookie sheet with foil because it can be messy.
Since heating up the oven isn’t something I always want to do, I usually make more than one.If you use the broiler of an oven, you can heat up your croissant faster, but only if you don’t want to eat more than one.
The oven method works best if I am making pasta for the whole family.I place my croissants on a pan far away from each other.I spread softened butter over the top of the croissant.Once the butter is in place, I spread a zigzag of honey over the top of each croissant.A thin line and zigzagged over top is all you need.
There are other ideas for a topping for your croissants.The garlic powder and cheese in the butter would make a wonderful garlic bread.It would be great to have cinnamon and sugar on the butter.You could add chocolate or butterscotch to your croissants to make them sweeter.A variety of ingredients could make your croissants delicious.
If you want to bake your croissants, bake them for 10 minutes.You should check them every five minutes to see what color they are.You want a slightly darker brown on the top of the grocery store croissants.The butter and honey bake in the oven and make the outside of the croissants flaky again.The butter makes the bread creamy and shiny.The bread has honey on it.When you apply the honey, some of it will trickle down the sides to give the lower edges of the croissant a perfect bite all at once.
If your croissants are a dark brown color, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a while.The outer crust needs to be cooled a bit to give it a nice texture.It’s best to serve the croissants slightly warm.
