Croissant .
Everybody thinks croissants were invented by the French, but it was in Budapest in 1686 that the first croissant was born. I recommend doubling this recipe, since croissants can be baked, immediately frozen, and reheated as needed. (Reheat in a 350F (175C) oven for 5 minutes, or until the crust is crisp. They will always taste fresh if this procedure is followed.) Ingredients: 1 pound all-purpose flour 4 Tbsp sugar 1 tsp salt 1/2 ounce fresh yeast (or 1 Tbsp dry) 1-1/4 cups milk 12 ounces unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 egg, lightly beaten, for egg wash Instructions: Using the dough hook of an electric mixer, combine flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl. Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup lukewarm milk. Add to the flour mixture, together with the remaining milk, and mix until dough forms a ball. emove dough hook. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow dough to rest for 1 or 1-1/2 hours, until double in bulk. Punch down the dough and refrigerate it, covered, for 30 minutes. Mold the butter into a block. Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Cut a deep cross in the dough. Spread out the sections of dough so that the center is the thickest part. Roll it in opposite directions to form a four-leaf clover, keeping the center thicker. Place the block of butter diagonally in the center of the cloverleaf and bring the edges of the dough to the center, enclosing the butter completely. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour. To make the turns, place the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface. Pound lightly and evenly with your rolling pin to make the dough malleable. Roll out into a rectangle approximately 9 by 16 inches. With the 9-inch side in front of you, fold into thirds, starting with the bottom third and folding over the top third. You have now completed the first turn. Turn the dough so that the narrow end faces you, keeping the seam on your right (a quarter turn). Again, roll out the dough into a rectangle approximately 9 by 16 inches, and again fold into thirds. You have now completed two turns. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Pound the dough evenly and again roll out into a 9-by-16-inch rectangle. Complete two more turns to make four turns. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 50 to 60 minutes. Preheat oven to 400F (205C) . Roll out dough into two rectangles 1/6 inch thick. Cut into triangles and shape into crescents. Put them on a baking sheet and allow to rise for 20 minutes. Brush each croissant with egg wash and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Yield: Makes 24 croissants

The French Croissant


One of the finest croissants I was ever served was aboard the transatlantic passenger liner the SS France. On a round-trip voyage of the ship, I spent several memorable days with her boulangers and ptissiers working and observing. Unlike today's one-class cruise ships, the France carried first-class and second-class passengers. In the ship's bakery, the croissants for the first-class dining room were made in the traditional crescent shape, while the same croissants destined for the other dining room were not given the quarter-moon shape but left straight. "When we are making hundreds, it just takes less time to shape and we can get more of them on a baking sheet," explained M. Gousse, the ptissier. This is the SS France recipe for its feather-light (1-ounce) croissant. Ingredients: 3 Tbsp flour 3 sticks butter (3/4 pound) of butter and margarine, equally divided and softened at room temperature 4 cups all-purpose flour, approximately 2 tsp salt 2 Tbsp sugar 2 packages dry yeast 1/4 cup warm water 1-1/2 cups milk, warmed to 80F to 90F (27C to 32C) 1/2 cup half-and-half, warmed 1 egg 1 Tbsp water Instructions: Sprinkle 3 Tbsp flour over butter and blend together on the work surface. On a length of foil, fashion a 6" square of soft butter; fold over the sides of the foil to enclose. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 2 to 3 hours. While the butter is chilling, prepare the dough. To mix by hand, in a large mixing or mixer bowl, blend 2 cups of the flour with salt and sugar. Dissolve yeast in warm water and add it and the warmed milk and half-and-half to the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon or the flat blade of an electric mixer to thoroughly blend the batterlike dough, about 2 minutes. Stir in additional flour, 1/4 cup at a time, to make a soft but not sticky dough (it will stiffen when chilled.) Knead by hand or under a dough hook for 5 minutes to form a solid mass. If using a food processor, attach the steel blade. Place 2 cups flour in the work bowl and add the dry ingredients. Pulse to mix. Pour the 1/4 cup water,

milk, and half-and-half through the feed tube. Pulse once or twice to be certain that all dry ingredients are moistened. Add the balance of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, turning the machine on briefly after each addition. When the mixture forms a mass and begins to clean the sides of the bowl, knead for 30 seconds. Don't overknead! This begins the process of cooling the dough and at the same time allowing it to rise. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Determine that both butter and dough are about the same temperature 65F (23C) is ideal. The block of butter should bend but not break (too cold) nor be oily (too warm) when bent slightly. This may mean taking the butter out of the refrigerator an hour or so early to reach workable temperature. Likewise for the dough. Place the dough on a floured work surface and with the hands press it into a 10" square. Unwrap the block of butter and lay the block diagonally on the dough. Bring each point of dough into the center, overlapping the edges at least 1". Press the dough into a neat package. With a heavy rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle, approximately 8" x 18". This dimension is not critical. Caution: If the butter seems to be breaking into small pieces under the dough rather than remaining solid, allow the dough/butter to warm a few minutes. But if the butter softens, becomes sticky, and oozes while making the turns, put the dough back into the refrigerator for several minutes. Fold the length of dough into thirds, as for a letter. Turn so that the open ends are at twelve and six o'clock. Roll again into a rectangle. This time, fold both ends into the middle and then close, as one would a book. The dough will now be in 4 layers. Wrap the package of dough in a cloth (an old tea towel is good) that has been soaked in cold water and wrung dry. Place the wrapped dough in the refrigerator to relax and chill for 1 or 2 hours. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place on the floured work surface. Unwrap, roll out, and fold in thirds, as for a letter. This is the final turn before it is rolled out and cut into croissants. Dampen cloth again and wrap loosely around the dough. Place the package in a plastic bag so moisture will be retained (not pulled out of the cloth). Leave in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours or overnight. Mix together the egg and 1 Tbsp of water. Have ready the egg wash, a knife or pastry cutter, and a wooden yardstick if you wish the pieces to be cut precisely otherwise, plan to cut them freehand. You may have or can borrow a French croissant cutter that cuts the dough into triangles. Sprinkle work surface with flour. Roll the dough until it is a generous 10"-x38" rectangle, and, most importantly, about 1/4" thick. This is a crucial dimension, since it determines the size and texture of the croissants. Trim

irregularities to make the strip uniform in width. Cut the strip lengthwise to make two 5" pieces. Mark the strip into triangles, 5" wide on the bottom. Using a yardstick as a guide, cut through the dough with a pastry or pizza cutter or knife. Separate the triangles, place them on a baking sheet, and chill for 15 to 20 minutes. Roll the dough into the traditional croissant shape, by rolling the triangle from the bottom to the point. Place the croissants on a baking sheet and allow to rise for 1 to 2 hours, in which they will double in volume. Preheat the oven to 425F (220C). Bake the croissants for 22 to 25 minutes. Allow them to cool on a rack before serving. Yield: 24 to 30 croissants

Danish Pastry Dough


Recipe By : Family Circle Magazine February 1974 Serving Size : 24 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : Cakes And Baked Desserts Pastries Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ -------------------------------2 envelopes active dry yeast 1/2 cup very warm water 1/3 cup sugar 3/4 cup milk -- cold 2 eggs 4 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 pound butter flour for work surface Carefully read TIPS FOR THE BAKER at bottom of recipe before proceeding. 1. Sprinkle yeast into very warm water in a 1 cup measuring cup. ("Very warm" water should feel comfortably warm when dropped on wrist.) Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar. Stir until yeast dissolves. Let stand, undisturbed until bubbly and double in volume, about 10 minutes. Now you can tell the yeast is working. 2. Combine remaining sugar, milk, eggs, 3 cups of the flour, salt, and the yeast mixture in a large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed, for 3 minutes (or beat with spoon for 3 minutes). Beat in remaining flour with a wooden spoon until dough is shiny and elastic (dough capable electric mixer is fine, this is an old recipe!). Dough will be soft. Scrape down sides of bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. refrigerate 30 minutes. 3. Place the sticks of butter 1 inch apart, between two sheets of waxed paper; roll out to a 12 inch square. Chill on cookie sheet until ready to use. 4. Sprinkle working surface heavily with flour, about 1/3 cup; turn dough out onto flour; sprinkle flour on top of dough. Roll out to an 18" x 13" rectangle. Brush off excess flour with a soft pastry brush. 5. Peel off top sheet of wax paper from butter; place butter paper side up on one end of dough to cover 2/3 of the dough; peel off remaining sheet of waxed paper. For easy folding, carefully score butter lengthwise down the center, without cutting into the dough. Fold the

third of dough which is not covered with butter over the middle third of the dough to enclose the butter completely. Turn dough clockwise so the open side is away from you. 6. *Roll out to a 24" x 12" rectangle using enough flour to keep dough from sticking. Fold both side ends in to meet in the center of the dough (creating a folded edge at both sides of dough). Fold in half to bring the two folded edges together and create four layers of dough. Turn again so the open side is away from you. * Repeat rolling and folding this way two more times. Keep the dough to a perfect rectangle by rolling straight up and down and from side to side. When it is necessary, chill the dough between rollings. Clean off the working surface each time and dust lightly with flour. Refrigerate dough 1 hour or more (even overnight, if you wish) to relax dough and firm up butter layers). Cut dough in half. You can see the buttery layers, which when baked become flaky and crisp. Work with only half the dough at a time. Keep the other half covered and refrigerated until ready to use. At this point use dough to make pastries like Cheese Danish, Almond Crescents etc. See individual recipes. ** TIPS FOR THE BAKER: It is important to keep butter enclosed in dough. If it oozes out, immediately sprinkle with flour and if dough becomes too sticky to handle it is probably because the butter has softened. Just chill 30 minutes before continuing rolling and folding. Use more flour than you would normally use for rolling out pastries, then brush off excess with a soft pastry brush before folding or filling; this way flour will not build up in the pastry. Since the dough is very rich, it is best to let pastries rise at room temperature . Do not try to hasten the rise by using heat; doing so would melt the butter. This would ruin the texture of the pastry. If using margarine (NOT recommended because of changes in the water content in recent years) which is of a softer consistency than butter, refrigerate 20 minutes between each rolling. For freezing: Place shapes pastries on cookie sheets. Don't brush with egg or sprinkle with toppings until ready to bake. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and freeze. To Bake from frozen state: Remove Danish from freezer the night before and place in refrigerator. Next morning, arrange on cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Let rise at room temperature, away from drafts until

double in volume, about 1 1/2 hours. Brush with egg wash, sprinkle with toppings; bake following individual recipes. For refrigerating: Place shaped Danish on cooky sheets; cover; refrigerate. To bake simply remove from refrigerator, let rise and bake as above.

Danish Pastry (Dansk Wienerbrod)


4 cup flour 1 tsp. Salt 1/4 cup sugar 2 yeast cakes (2-1/4 oz.) 1 cup milk 1 egg 1 1/2 cup butter

Sift flour and mix with sugar and salt. Mix yeast with a little cold milk. Add the rest of the milk and the beaten egg to flour and sugar. Beat well until smooth with a wooden spoon. Roll out the dough on baking board to 1 finger thickness. Spread small pieces of butter on 2/3 of the dough. The butter must have same consistency as the dough; if it is too soft it melts into the dough. Fold together into three layers like folding a napkin, first the part without butter. Roll out and fold again. Repeat three or four times. Leave in a cold place for 1/2 hour. This is the dough with which many different kinds of Danish pastry is made. When pastry is shaped, place on baking sheet and leave in cold place to rise for 15 to 20 minutes, then brush with egg white and bake in a fast oven until golden brown. Yield: 1 serving Variations: Cock's Combs (hanekamme): Roll out dough to finger thickness and spread with a paste made of equal parts of butter and sugar, then cut into square pieces 4" x 4". Place filling across middle and fold over. Press the edges firmly together and make 4 or 5 deep slashes in this side. Let rise, brush with egg white and spread with chopped almonds and sugar. Spandaurers:: Roll out dough, spread with paste and cut as above. Place filling in middle. Fold corners to the center and press down. After baking drop 1 teaspoon of jelly in the center and spread with frosting of confectioner's sugar and water. Chocolate Buns: Roll out dough, spread with paste and cut as above. Place filling of vanilla creme in middle, fold corners to the center, forming dough as a ball and place upside down on baking sheet. After baking spread with frosting of confectioner's sugar, cocoa and water. Any filling may be used apple sauce, jelly, prunes, vanilla creme or almond paste. Vanilla Creme: Mix 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and 3/4 cup milk and cook until thick. Take off, add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and cool stirring occasionally.

Almond Paste: Cream 1/2 cup butter, add 1/4 lb. ground, blanched almonds and 1/2 cup sugar and mix well until smooth. Another kind of almond paste without butter is made of: 1/4 lb. almonds, 1/2 cup sugar and 3 egg whites. Work well together until smooth.
