Ah! I’m an epicurean at heart, no doubt about it.

I’m too lazy/intimidated to make croissants from scratch and was thus utterly delighted to discover some frozen *these* at my local co-op:

But that is not all, friends. That is not all.

Consider this image of my stove carefully (don’t pay attention to the clock):

I’ll paypal funds for a latte to the first person who figures out what’s got me so excited – a new gentle source of Contentment in my life.

UPDATE: @Al, sir, I’m shooting you a little latte fund! You got it — I put one in the oven the night before and awake to the aroma of freshly baked croissant. Le voila:

  1. I’d say the recipe recall has a croissant recipe in it 😛

    Tina! I didn’t even realize there was such a thing as “recipe recall”. I’ll have to check into that.

  2. Hi Nancy,

    1. You can put them frozen in the oven and start them cooking before you get home from church on Sunday morning


    2. The second time you do it, you press Recipe Recall.

    Did I win?:-)

    Ah Mr. P — you are close, so very, very close on the 1st one. Just de-religion it a bit. Think a potential everyday occurrence …

    I guess I should have read/looked more closely 😛
    I think you’re right Al!

    Yeah, I have an oven with a timer like this too and have thought about just popping the frozen croissants in the oven to thaw overnight and then the oven comes on and cooks them automatically for me so they’re ready along with my (also timer-set-and-brewed) coffee in the morning. Come downstairs and breakfast and coffee are ready and waiting, plus you get to smell the divine scents of coffee brewing and croissants baking while you’re in bed waking up.

    But there’s one catch: The croissants come out quite a bit better if you preheat the oven and then put them into the preheated oven. It gives them a better texture than if you let the oven heat up with the croissants in it!
