Croissant is my kind of food. Give it to me anytime and I’ll chow it down with a smiling face all the way to the moon! My earliest encounter with yummy croissants were the ones from Delifrance with thick slab of tuna inside. One bite and I was hooked for life!
In December last year, my sis attempted in her very first homemade croissant. Looking at her working the pastry make me realize you need patience and muscles for it. Rolling, folding, the waiting and then rolling and folding again and again all that while you make sure the butter is soft and cold. Sometimes it’ll make you jump up and down because you realize the butter is melting and you have to return it to the fridge. Hahaha *Malaysia’s weather.
The hard work paid off really well. Smell of perfumey butter during baking makes you wonder whether you’re still in your home or whether you’re in a faraway land, at a Parisan boulangerie?
Just eat it like this is great too. It’s very buttery and flaky. The quality is the same with Delifrance if I may say so if not better. Just that the looks are a bit off. Haha Not bad for her first attempt right? I’ll show the step-by-step if we ever make them again. Promise.
How I enjoyed my sis’ homemade croissant?
Tuna croissant of course with a cup of hot Milo. Yums! Hot chocolate will do too. There’s nothing better than this. 🙂 This last photo ain’t great as I was concentrating on how many pieces of tuna croissant I will eat that day! 😛 Hence the lazy snapshot.
p/s: I’m not really into chocolatines/pain au chocolat although I’m a chocolate lover. Maybe coz I haven’t found the perfect one yet.
