The Daring Bakers go retro this month! Thanks to one of our very talented non-blogging members, Sarah, the Daring Bakers were challenged to make Croissants using a recipe from the Queen of French Cooking, none other than Julia Child!
I love croissants. But I don't eat them too often because of that whole butter thing... Lactose intolerant me doesn't like to overdo the dairy... So I made my croissants with soy milk and margarine. They worked really well. I made the recipe twice. First time I followed the recipe (well, except for those two dairy changes/substitutions).
Some process pics:
Out of the oven - half plain, half with cinnamon sugar on top.The inside. Not as fluffy as "professional" ones, but darn tasty!!I was impressed with the flavor, the texture, and the butteriness, despite not using butter! So I made them a second time. This time I made half cinnamon sugar:
Thank you, Sarah! I love this recipe, and I think this is something I am going to do a lot! They were not nearly as difficult or time consuming as I had feared, and they worked SO well! If you can control your urge to lick the screen, take a look here at what my fellow Daring Bakers made!
