My first attempt at mixing, rolling, rising, rolling, folding, freezing, rolling, cutting, rising, baking making homemade croissants.

They do involve a little bit of a process to get the flaky dough we’re so accustomed to in store bought croissants.

This turned into a 2 day, off and on project to complete.  And with all those steps in preparation, I won’t bore you with all the details.

I will link you up with a superb step-by-step instruction that got me through it all….

I did make some slight changes to Izy’s recipe.

I added the pumpkin filling and pumpkin spread.  I used whole wheat flour.  And I added 1 Tbs of cinnamon and 3 Tbs of sugar to the dough.  I also made my croissants much smaller.  Next time I’ll make them larger though as a lot of the pumpkin filling oozed out the sides when baking.  Still very good but not so great in appearance ;(

I also sprinkled each one with a cinnamon sugar mixture after they were cooked.

The pumpkin pie spice dipping sauce or filling is like pie pudding.  It contrasts the crispy chewiness of the croissants and adds a little more sweetness to each bite.  It can be used with other desserts and even smoothies for a touch of pumpkin.

      Ready for fall, not for winter though.
      My Dad took that pic with a, then, fancy Nikon and a few years ago we bugged him to put 20 trays of slides on a CD so its been through the ringer.
      I look at my face then and try to remember what it was like when I wasn’t stressed out about the world each day.
      Had a great day with Mom today at least 😉

        When you have a mug of hot tea and something delicious to dunk into it who CARES about a few minor bumps…taste is everything. Do we care about someone who is going to judge your food on whether or not it can be entered in Master Chef? I think NOT 😉

      My pleasure and thanks so much for stopping by again. Love to see his recipe if you have it. My Mom’s recipes are so much of this, the right color of that, etc. Very hard to recreate without her next to me. But, as you say, I have the memories 😉
