Grandma's mini croissants - recipe (including photos)

Recently we tried a nice recipe from a Romanian site :

 Ingredients for the dough:
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 400 grams of flour
  • 4 spoons of fresh cream
  • 150 grams of melted butter
Ingredients for the whipped cream:
  • 6 egg whites 
  • 100 - 150 grams of sugar
  • 150 grams of ground walnuts
  • vanilla sugar

Mix well the flour, with the egg yolks, the cream and half of the melted butter...

...until the mixture looks like this.

Divide the dough in 8 parts .

Each part has to be stretched well.

Coat with melted butter and roll the dough.

Put the dough in the fridge for 2 hours.

In a separate bowl prepare the whipped cream. Beat well the egg whites with the sugar, and add the ground walnuts, the sugar and the vanilla sugar.

After 2 hours, take out the dough from the fridge and cut it in small pieces.

Stretch each part and put the cream in the middle.

Close it very well, otherwise will open during cooking.

And again to be sure it remains close.

Put the croissants in the tray, and let them bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 170 degrees.

Bon Appetit!
