Some day I plan to make croissants true to the ones I had on my short trip to Paris so many years ago. Croissants so flaky that it would be annoying how messy they are if they weren’t just so darn delicious. I’ll fill some with chocolate, others with ham and cheese, and others I’ll enjoy all on their own. Just thinking about it transports me back to France.
Le sigh. Paris, someday I’ll return.
In the meantime, I’ll just have to bake my own croissants. And since I haven’t yet gathered up my courage or blocked out a big enough junk of time for the real thing, I’ve settled with this quick and easy alternative.
These quick and easy croissants from Red Star Yeast may be more like crescent rolls than the croissants we’re all used to, but that doesn’t make them any less delicious. They’re soft and buttery, and perfect all by themselves or with a little slice of meat and cheese. A slather of nutella would be divine too. And I can only imagine how fabulous they’d be stuffed with a few chunks of chocolate before baking.
I really enjoyed these rolls, though I think I’m ready to try the real thing. Eek, wish me luck! Hopefully I’ll have a recipe to share soon.
