As this week’s title eludes to… I made croissants from scratch.
It was NOT easy!!! Basically, its a lot of HURRY UP and then wait..
Also SO…. MUCH… BUTTER!!!
These aint your mom’s Pillsbury Doughboy Croissants!!
They were made w/ love and a hell of a lot of arm strength….
Basically take a “human baby” of dough 7lbs 8 oz and start from there…
fyi, I was a fat baby,well I weight more than that “human baby” of dough….anyway
then beat the crap outta 3lbs of cold butter then roll onto 2 9×13 pan.
Then roll out the the dough then place one of the butter sheets on there and roll it thru “Big Bertha”….
She a beast….I call her Karma…no I really don’t. She’s just a machine
But if you aint nice to her, she aint nice back.
Anyways… if you were to do this task of rolling manually…
Be prepared to spend….meh 3-4 days of rolling and freezing dough.
My chef teacher said she’d charge 3 bucks a pop for fresh handmade croissants…
After making all of them on Friday, I dont blame her…
Next time y’all get a croissant, know the labor that went into them!!!!
Fun Fact: That Friday night, whilst getting gas, a homeless dude said he was hungry.
I thought I’d give him some of my croissants I made. Turns out he was allergic to gluten….
All I could say was “COME ON!!!!”, not out loud of course, it was already awkward as it was…
Previously I tried to give a homeless guy cookies, but he was a diabetic…I got such good luck huh?
The STRUGGLE IS REAL!!!
Anyways, that’s all I got for this week.
