To make croissants, first you must put it in your head that despite the fact that you have never made any type of bread before, you will execute this 16 hour task and make the greatest croissants ever known to man.
While it's not necessary, an inflated sense of self really comes in handy.
To begin, you will need the following items:
When ingredients have turned into dough, lightly dust dough with flour, pick it up and pack it into a nice firm ball and transfer it into a bowl where it will rise and double in size after about two hours.
Think to yourself, "well, it certainly isn't getting any worse", and add more ingredients at will. Remember, baking isn't so much a science as it is an art form. Also remember, keep adding more flour. Then more yeast. Then more milk, and so on and so on.
