Croissants... They will make you happy to be alive.
Last week I had a craving for croissants. I never really knew what they entailed but, now that I do, I'm not sure I will be making them again for awhile.
That said they were WONDERFUL. I mean really fill your mouth with buttery goodness and make your heart smile good. Also, while I had to be at home most of the day to do the four different folds they really weren't all that difficult. Just time consuming. And COMPLETELY worth it.
I could copy all the directions but, since Jessica already went to all that trouble, I'm just going to link to her extremely helpful step by step directions.
