I share my homemade croissant and petit pain au chocolat recipe. I show how to make them from scratch.
Croissant & Petit-Pain-Au-Chocolat are a typical French pastry. They are usually served for breakfast but they also make a great snack for adults and younger children.
This recipe is my own. There are different ways of making the pâte feuilletée (puff pastry) but this is how I found it works best.
When placing the cold butter in the dough it shouldn't fall in pieces like it did in this video. But for some reason this recipe gave me a harder time making it when I tried to record it.
- 0.5 cup warm water
- 1 tbsp dry yeast
- pinch of salt
- 3 tsp white sugar
- 4 oz butter (1 stick)
