French Croissants


These croissants make great breakfast sandwiches or stand alone well. They have layers of flaky, buttery crust that will melt in your mouth. They take time to make, but you will always be glad you did!



I have had this croissant recipe for years just scribbled on a piece of paper. Im not sure where the recipe came from, but this recipe is well worth the time put into it. I like larger croissants, so this recipe gives me between 6-8 croissants.
