Making croissants is time consuming but it is well worth the efforts. It is also much more economical. I pay almost $2.00 for one croissant at the First Canadian Place when I need a snack in the afternoon. Well, not anymore! My home-made version is just 100x better than the store bought ones. These croissants are flaky on the outside, light and airy in the centre. Best served when they're right out of the oven with a cup of coffee or cappuccino ... it's simply heaven.
The recipe is adapted from William Sonoma, "Essentials of Baking". I will update this blog with the recipe (as it requires a lot of typing...) shortly.
