My latest trial

A. asked for croissants for breakfast last weekend and I really wanted to try making some again after my last trials that were so so. Indeed I tried twice before to make croissant and if there was always something to complain about. For my first trial they had the consistency and taste of brioche, delicious but not a croissant at all. My second trial, more than one year ago, the taste was perfect but they didn't really grow fluffy so they were tiny and heavy and slightly unbaked because it took actually more time to cook them and I was worried they would dry. This time I used the same recipe as before but the temperature was higher so they grow bigger, but I made a little reading mistake when finalizing the shapes and instead of one layer of dough I rolled two: heavier, less fluffy than expected and twice less croissants! But perfectly baked with the longer time and very promising. I'm getting close! Can't wait to try again!!!
