Baking with Julia challenge was croissants and miracle of miracles I actually completed it on time!
For a full rundown on how to make this time consuming yet delicious treat head on over to Girl + Food = Love.
Now lets get down to brass tacks. Croissants are very involved and take a solid two days to make. I was aware of this and started making mine on Saturday. I spent a lot of time wielding my rolling pins and figured at least one of them deserved to be featured. For the bulk of the rolling I used my marble rolling pin, meanwhile my wooden pin got the honor of whacking at the dough to distribute the butter.
Sunday was a bust, so I did most of the work on Monday, leaving the final rolling and proofing for today.
They are very good, but I'm not sure I'll be investing so much time in them again. They are tasty, just not two days of rolling dough tasty.
