A Croissant is a staple of French bakeries,a buttery flaky bread roll named for its distinctive crescent shape.Usually its prepared from a yeast leavened bread but here I tried a shortcut and made them using the versatile puff pastry sheets.Puff Pastry sheets are quite handy at times and this served a quick snack.Actually,I forgot to click the step by step pictures of making these,sorry about it but its quite simple to make with puff pastry sheets and no much ingredients.Enjoy this with your desired filling,kids will ask you for more & even chocolaty adults like me too:-)
puff pastry sheets 1 pkt
dark chocolate bar 1(I used Hersheys)
egg white 1 (for glaze)
-Thaw the puff pastry sheets as per packet instructions.
-Remove each sheet and as you know it has 3 long layers.Cut each layer in the same folds,you will get 6 long stripes with one packet.
-Take each stripe and make a diagonal cut along lengthwise to get two traingles.Similarly repeat for all stripes.
You get a total of 12 triangles.
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a tray with parchment paper.
-Place a piece of chocolate in the base of triangle leaving an inch from the side.
-And start rolling till you finish the stripe.Finish it off by applying a little water to seal .Fold in a shape of crescent and place it in the tray.
-Apply egg white with brush liberally and repaet the step for other triangles.
-Place it in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
-Remove from oven and cool for 5 mins and enjoy with tea!!
Servings~ 12 croissants
* You can add your desired filling in these.Chocolate comes handy and available at all times:-)
