Last week I saw the March Kitchen Challenge that Lindsay is hosting on her blog, Love & Olive Oil. I was excited to try something that I’d never done before …. make homemade croissants. The idea of it was a bit scary considering it required 6 pages of printed recipe instructions.
Everything was going really good at first. I made the dough, did the chilling, made the butter block, did the layers several times, cut and shaped the little croissants. They were purdy! And then when it came time to let them rise, everything went downhill. They melted!!!
Clearly my kitchen was much too warm. But I didn’t give up. I shed a few tears, trashed a lot of hard work (hours of it) and picked myself up. A new batch went in the oven today and came out gorgeous. I’ll share those later this week.
