My first Julia Child recipe attempt, French croissant. Typically, one should start with the “easy” recipes before diving straight into making croissants …we all know how difficult croissants are to make to begin with! However, the difficulty was not in the recipe, but more so in it being very time-consuming. With eight articles to read and annotate, my time was precious!
Total time to make: 1 day, 4 hours
Total cook time: 15 minutes
Recipe: Julia Child French chef Croissants part 1-3 (YouTube)
Lessons Learned: Do not heat the oven at 475 degrees. Instead, 400 would do just fine. My precious croissants burned all because Julia lied!
After choosing to refrigerate my dough overnight, I woke up to begin my four rounds of beating, folding, and re-refregirating my dough twice for a total amount of four hours.
I needed some time to grasp the amount of hard work put into my croissant and the results. Burnt slightly, but they do taste great!
