  1. good video but what a lot of work,,,easier for me to buy the croissants at a bakery,…i am not a bake person and can screw this up…but not difficult…thank u

  2. the softened butter is salted or unsalted butter? can i replace instant dry yeast instead of using active dry yeast? will it have any changes when i use instant dry yeast?

  3. Hello, thanks for recipe I made it today and it is so successful. One thing I need to improve is the surface of it is not fully golden color , the part with egg is brown but after croissant increases the size , the increased part still white color , can you help ? If this is due to baking temperature too low ? I am using 320F that you suggested , or should I bake 10 mins then take it out brush with egg then bake again ?

  4. Can I have the exact amount you used for this recepie please? I want to try it! I am just going to do it buy hand though lol

  5. My dough came out very dry. After converting from ml to cups I used 1.5 cups of milk. Should I add a little more. Maybe 1/4 cup of milk?

  6. I enjoyed watching your video. It's so soothing with the birds chirping in the background and I like the step by step procedure. I will try this weekend.
