Homemade croissants are flaky and buttery. Both sweet and savory croissants taste amazingly good with tea or coffee. Croissants can be easily customized by stuffing them with fun fillings like chocolate, Nutella, cheese, cinnamon sugar, lemon curd, fruit jam, peanut butter etc. Croissants are quick and easy to bake if you know the secret to making the perfect dough. Making dough requires time and it is most definitely a labor of love. You can still enjoy warm homemade croissant if you don’t have time to make dough from scratch – get ready store bought dough and bake it.
