Making easy croissants at home can be a rewarding experience. To start, you’ll need store-bought puff pastry dough, which saves time compared to making croissant dough from scratch. Roll out the puff pastry into a large rectangle and cut it into triangles.


• 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup unsalted butter, cold
• 2/3 cup milk, cold
• 1 egg for egg wash


1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. Mix well.

2. Cut the cold butter into small cubes and add it to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour until you have a coarse, crumbly mixture.

3. Gradually add the cold milk and mix until a dough forms.

4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it briefly, just until it comes together.

5. Roll the dough into a rectangle, then fold it into thirds like a letter.

6. Repeat the rolling and folding process two more times.

7. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

8. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

9. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Cut it into triangles.

10. Roll each triangle tightly, starting from the wide end, to form croissants.

11. Place the croissants on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

12. Beat the egg and brush it over the croissants for a golden finish.

13. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the croissants are golden brown and flaky.

14. Enjoy your freshly baked, buttery croissants!
