Well it turns out that both the croissants and me were a bit tired last night so we had an overnight rest.
But refreshed, rolled, twisted and baked (them not me) here they are……
……….just the thing with some delicious Paradise Kitchen jam.
What do you mean it’s not breakfast time yet?
We’ve been away doing our own bit of ancestral tourism and exploring a little of the Western Isles.
..and maybe enjoying the odd cup of tea
Now we’re home it’s all systems go for the summer so I’m back to the baking. Yesterday was Welshcakes and oatcakes, today I’m trying something new. Croissants. So far the technique is similar to the one for Aberdeen butteries but more, well, buttery. I don’t have a family or neighbourly recipe for them, I’ve gone back to my trusty Good Housekeeping cookbook.
They need to rest in the fridge for half an hour, and that time’s nearly up.
