Just wanted to show a good bake from my WFO yesterday.

Re: Croissants
Wow, very nice. One day I would like to tackle croissants. I tried them once, they didn't turn out so well.

Are yours sourdough?

Soo nice!

Re: Croissants
No these are not sourdough. This is just a basic dough. This comes from the book Advanced Bread and Pastry by Suas. He has other formulas some with preferments and I think a sourdough. I plan to just take them in order and give them all a try. This batch had 8# of dough and 2# of butter. So today I'm the croissant fairy giving them away to friends and family.

I wish I lived a little closer I would love to try one of those.

Re: Croissants

Those croissants remind me of a little bakery I would frequent in Montmare, Paris, France everymorning. Nicely done.

Re: Croissants
Nice! I like the inner structure of the croissants.

Re: Croissants
Thanks everyone for the nice complements. This is by far my best set of croissants. There seams to be many different ways to do them with many different formulas. So once this set has been "dispatched" I'm looking forward to playing with some of the others that I have my eye on.

Thanks again, Faith

Re: Croissants
Great product. Have you ever attempted pretzels ?

Re: Croissants
Pretzels have been on my to-do-list apparently for a long time. I just noticed I bought Sodium Hydroxide - Food NAOH-8-FOOD_GRADE for pretzels last April.

Where does the time go? Looks like Pretzels just got bumped up on that list.
