And then I tasted one (okay, 5).....
OMG, these are so good....so melt in your mouth. So I am already planning what to do with the second half of the dough (it's a no brainer.....almond is coming soon!)
Okay, a quick confession....I shortcutted the heck out of this recipe. The butter never really came together, I just scraped it out of the mixer and formed it into the oval.
And this is the sad version of the rectangle before the first refrigerator stint. I will admit by the 3rd turn the rectangle was starting to take shape, but the camera was not in my thoughts by then...
Looks good, huh? Well, truth be told, with half the dough I got 26 triangles (supposed to be 14).... Now what to do? Ummm, let's call them mini croissants, eh? In reality, I was pretty uneven in the rolling, so some of my extras probably came from intermittent thin dough rolling. HOWEVER, I will note after the fact,
that some of those thin croissants were mighty tasty!!
What can I say? I love them. Enough said.
What a wild ride this one was! Thanks to Amanda at Girl+Food=Love for hosting this recipe. To see what other Doristas did with this recipe, you can visit Tuesdays with Dorie.
