Perfecting the French Croissant

I wrote a tutorial for French croissants last year. About a month ago I received a comment that pretty much said that I was doing it all wrong. After doing some more research, I realized that my croissants didn’t come out very well at all. I apologize for sharing a less than stellar technique.

While the recipe was fine, I did not chill my dough sufficiently and so my own batch didn’t come out very well. I spent the last few weeks working on improving the recipe, photos, and adding troubleshooting tips. I think it’s much better now. Check it out, if you’d like, by clicking here.

  1. Well, thank you for the update, but since I’ve made croissants before I don’t think I’ll try it again. I’ll save my croissant eating when we return to Paris. Your croissants look absolutely gorgeous.
