I made these light and fluffy layered croissants for my son’s French class. They are crunchy outside and sweet inside that both my son and his classmates loved them.

Add 1 tbsp oil into the yeast mixture, mix well then pour into the flour bowl. Knead a few times to make a soft dough (Picture 2) but don’t over knead.

2: Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume (Picture 3). Chill the dough in a fridge for 20 minutes. Take out the dough and shape into a log on a floured surface. Press down and roll out into a 30×60 cm rectangle.

3: Thinly slice the butter of Ingredient 4) and set aside under room temperature for 30 minutes. Lay them over two-thirds of the dough surface, leaving an unbuttered border about ¼ inch. Fold the unbuttered third towards to centre (Picture 4), then fold the other third to make a 3-layered dough. Turn 90 degrees (Picture 5) and roll out into a 30×60 cm rectangle (Picture 6). Fold again into thirds as before (Picture 7-8). Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill for 15 minutes.

6: Repeat the Step 5 two more times. Then roll out the dough into a 30×60 cm rectangle. Cut the dough horizontally into two halves then cut each half into 12 triangles (Picture 11). Place a portion of filling (about ¾ tsp) near the bottom of the triangle (Picture 12). Gently roll towards the pointed end, stretching it slightly as you roll. Bend the two legs inwards to form a crescent shape (Picture 13). Shape the remaining croissants in the same manner.

7: Arrange them on two parchment paper lined baking sheets (Picture 14). Chill immediately for 30 minutes. Never allow them a final rising, or they will not have the proper flakiness.

8: Preheat oven at 400F/205C. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce to 350F/175C and bake for additional 12-15 minutes until golden.

    毛毛妈,我昨天试了一下这个,做的没有你的好,只能说是凑合吃,好像我弄的面还是很厚。擀开成30×60厘米的长方形 – 是不是应该越薄越好?

    毛毛妈,你好,昨天尝试一下,但是没成功,因为DOUGH 很粘,所以就一直放面粉,做出来后很厚,好象没发好一样。你觉得是我哪个操作过程出现差错了呢?谢谢你!
