Croissants Part I

Okay - so part of Thanksgiving for my family are the croissants. They're a big part actually. My Mom still makes these and takes them to some of our close family friends. Some of them don't even start their meal until the croissants are there, lol!

They're all sorts of wonderful for the leftover turkey sandwiches....a little warmed turkey, stuffing and gravy gently placed on the sliced in half croissant, add a little homemade cranberry sauce and a good layer of sprouts......YUM!

If you want the actual recipe - ask. It is a little labor intensive, but if you're up to it - go for it!

Get your flour ready with the sugar and salt. In a separate bowl get your warm milk and yeast going.

Get your preliminary mixing done with the paddle attachment.

Once you get to the serious mixing, you're gonna wanna switch out to your dough hook attachment. Mix in the flour one cup at a time.

After all 4 cups of flour are kneaded in, make sure that your dough is a very soft dough.

Put in a bowl and let rise for the first time about 1 1/2 hours.

You got Doug craving these! He is wishing you were next door again instead of states away. I second his wishes!
