Easy bake croissants-ish

Published January 30, 2013

My obsession with weekly baking has faded slightly, but I’m still keen on getting things in the oven and seeing what happens. I’m too much of a coward to dive straight into making croissants by hand, but they’re a popular foodstuff in this house, so I was intrigued when I saw an odd little can from Jus-Rol, the incredible ready-made pastry people.

Turns out, it was a roll of dough to make croissants, ready cut, ready to roll, ready to bake. I couldn’t resist.

They were nice, although they weren’t really like croissants that I would recognise. Right shape, tasted okay, not quite the right texture. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend them, but it was fun to try. I also now know what shape to make the pastry when I one day get the courage to make my own.

Update: Turns out these are not so much croissants as “crescent rolls” which are different. I’d never heard of them, but the talk is, they get wrapped around sausages sometimes. That makes these very similar to the easy-bake sausage rolls I made! Baking connections are fun.
