MASTERING CROISSANTS IN 5 EASY STEPS
1. Proof your Croissants (8-10 hours before baking)
2. Preheat oven to 325-350 (depending on how hot your oven is and how crispy you like your croissants). We go for a temperature of 325 at the cafe, and bake ours for 24 minutes.
3. Egg wash Croissants
4. Place croissants on middle rack in preheated oven and let bake for 24-27 minutes. Again, the range depends on your oven and how crispy you like your croissants. I like the chocolate ones done a little less, so I would pull them out at the 24 minute mark. You’re looking for a dark golden brown colour on your pastry.
5. Let cool (or not), and ENJOY! If you choose, dust the chocolate croissants with a bit of icing sugar 5 minutes after they come out of the oven.
