I used to make them. I'll have to look out my recipe. It's very time consuming and

I think I got busy with other things and decided life was too short for folding croissants. It must be 30-something years since I made any.

I'll have a root round for the book with the instructions when I get home tonight.

I made them time ago but I can't remember the blog in which I found them. Support to you! It's not an easy recipe, everything has to be cold when folding and using butter, but the final result probably will make you forget the real effort you did in making them. Be strong!

There's a reason the vast majority of the world buys croissants... they are not easy to make.

I use the recipe in The Joy of Cooking. I'm teaching the young lads how to make them April 25th.

Sorry, I'm on the third box of books and still haven't found the one with the croissant recipe in it.

This recipe is closest to the croissants made by Shrek in his bakery days without having to use 100 pounds of flour. He has looked it over and says this is how they made them and the ingredients are the same.

A nice way to begin a Sunday Morning...looking at croissant recipes
