Trader Joe’s Mini Croissants
These are absolutely delicious!
I have made croissants a few times and it’s a process not for the faint of heart. It takes a long time and though the results are excellent, I’m not sure I want to make them frequently.
I go to Trader Joe’s on a regular basis to restock my favorite products that I can’t get anywhere else and I always try to get something new to test out. These were it this time.
You take them out the night before (they are frozen, so look in the frozen section), place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet to proof and the next morning bake them off! I tried them this past Saturday/Sunday. They were in the oven for all of 4 minutes when we lost electricity (extremely windy over the weekend) so I took them out. Two hours later when the electric came back on, I put the croissants back into the oven and believe it or not they turned out perfectly! Paper thin crunchy on the outside and soft and delicate on the inside.
Post Thanksgiving breakfast, everyone will be very impressed!
I saw them in chocolate too!!! yum!
