Croissant Crazy!

Right about now I have had it with Croissant Dough! Yeah, I know I can go on and on about dough and how it takes me to a quiet-zen-like-place. But I just finished with my Hands-On Croissant Dough class. It went pretty good, actually. And I think there will be a few who will carry on and make them at home. One gal, in particular, called with pride after she took her dough home and made a savory version. Those kind of comments are more than I can hope for in a class like that!
The prep involves making lots of dough for the students to shape and bake. 'PlayDough', so to speak!!



This photo is a great(dark) example of a yeasted-laminated dough and the many layers. There are approximately, 943, but who is counting!!


Toblerone Croissants & Almond Croissant waiting to tempt the students!

A good couple of days work, and two batches of dough left in the fridge......Trust Me.....I won't be making Croissants for a long time. Call me if you are looking to play with some of my extra dough! I'll deliver in the Paris area!! hehe!

I wish I was in the Paris area! I could use a class on this topic, too. Lord, it all looks so good.

Tanna, I need to read your blog and old blog from cover to cover, I had no idea that you were such a Francophile! Barge on the Seine, the ultimate!

Betty, my life might not be as busy as yours!!

Lindy, catch a flight, there is always flour and butter in the house!

Keiko, If I could send a batch of dough, I'd love for you to try it and give me an honest opinion!!
Best to you!
