The Buttery, Flaky, "You Made This?!" Pastry
Homemade croissants don't require any special ingredients, equipment or degree in French viennoiserie. All you need is time, so the dough can rest and rise. Eat Make Celebrate's Yasmina Jacobs walks newbies through each step in this uncomplicated recipe, which basically consists of combining yeast, warm milk and sugar with flour, butter and salt; shaping the risen dough into crescents; and, baking until puffed up and golden. Serve the croissants with jam and tea for a très Parisian morning, or afternoon snack.
