Sourdough Croissants

Sourdough Surprise October 2014 



Don't you just know when you have a great recipe in front you?
 I was a bit reluctant to take a part in this months Sourdough Surprise challenge because I never made croissants before and to jump over that, one very important step, and go straight into attempting to make a sourdough version of it, seemed like a bite that I wouldn't be able to chew without choking. But I did, thanks to the devotion of TXFarmer to make perfect home- made croissants!


I followed the recipe to the dot and  if I only was able to keep the the room temperature a bit better, I would have ended up with crumbs to be very proud of. But, I am not complaining. Two days ago I thought that I even shouldn't be trying to make the sourdough croissants yet.
It makes you wonder - how many more things you keep yourself from doing because you think you are not ready for it?

  7. Pravila sam ih, ali sa kiselim tijestom jos ne...Ostaje i to da probam. Uzme dosta vremena, ali su domaci ipak najbolji.

  9. Something that I'm going to try this weekend is taking an empty wine bottle, half-filling it with water, and freezing it. It's a frozen rolling pin that helps with keeping the dough cold while rolling it out :)

  10. First things first, your croissants look amazing. You are right - that recipe is amazing, and can give confidence to all of us that we can do it! Secondly, I love your ending line. You are so right - sometimes our biggest hurdles are all in our minds!! You did really great work.

  13. You are right, many times we don't try things just because we think we will not be able to do them. That reminds me that I never made croissants at home just because I think that the result will not be good enough.
    You have to be pleased with your croissants, they look amazing!
