The 12 Hour Daring Baker's Challenge

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, of course, made my Wednesday Bible Study girls be the guinea pigs for this recipe, and I don't think they minded that at all. The smell of the buttery croissants in the oven was almost worth it in itself.

Even though this challenge was extremely time consuming it was very simple and took almost no ingredients. It's something anyone could do with a little advanced planning. My only complaint is that even the low estimate on the baking time turned out to be just a tad too long for my taste. I would have preferred my croissants to be just a tad less crispy on the outside, but overall they were delicious. Perfect with a side of berries on a cool September morning.

To get the recipe go to www.thedaringkitchen.com and try these flaky treats for yourself.

Even if they take 12 hours it seems it was WORTH it well done and I like the colour of them a lot. Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.
