Dear Homemade Croissants,

Croissants On Cooling Rack

If you are thinking about climbing this mountain, here’s what you should know:

1. Clear your schedule. This will take most of the day.

2. Get good butter.

4. Read this recipe (or this one) 3 times even before getting the flour out of the pantry.

5. Double check you have all the ingredients.

6. Have “The French Chef” episode at close hand to reference technique.


Remember not to bite right into one directly out of the oven; much like homemade bread, they need a resting period.


Bon Appétit.
