Jam croissants - recipe (with step-by-step photos)

Ingredients for 15 croissants:
  • 250 grams of wheat flour
  • 120-140 milliliters of warm milk
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 30 grams of sugar
  • 10 grams of fresh yeast
  • salt
  • jam

Mix the fresh yeast with the milk and 1 spoon with sugar. Let it rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.

Over the flour add the salt, the remaining sugar, the milk/yeast mixture and mix. Let it rest in the fridge over night.

The next day, divide the butter at room temperature in 3 parts.

Spread the dough on the table and add one part of the butter. Fold the dough and put it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Repeat the operations 2 more times.

Spread the dough on the table and cut it in equal parts.

Add the jam and roll it.

Let the croissants rest for another 20 minutes then brush on top some milk and spread some granulated sugar.

Put it in the oven at 180 Celsius degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Very good as a desert or a breakfast next to a glass of milk!
