Two questions to satisfy the OCD part of my brain.

1. How big should the circle of dough be?

2. How many slices are in that circle?

The dough circle should be like 10 inches = 30 cm in diameter (or more)

12 slices gives the proper shape !

Also thinking Nutella and creamy peanut butter combined. A very popular combo here in the States.

croissant, recipe

Cheat's French Croissant! Budget, Instant, Delicious Croissant Hi guys, Yes, That's right. I lost my mind. I've decided to make fake french croissants. Not so fake. Not so real either. I hope I won't loose my nationality by doing these... But they are the fastest croissants you could ever make. First you will need puff pastry. I use two stacked rolls of butter puff pastry to make it thicker ( 5 mm or 1/5 inch ). And that's it. No more fancy ingredients. A round dough is indeed a nice shape for what's coming next. Then, cut the dough into Thin-Pizza-Slices shapes. Boom ! They go in the preheated oven at 220C or 440F for about 15 minutes (or till they go golden brown)... Out of the oven. Eat them warm with sugar on top. We don't do that in France but who cares ;) It's perfect for a different yet tasty and quick breakfast, don't you think ? Hope you will like it G 3 stars 1 reviews
