- Dissolve the yeast, and the sugar in lukewarm milk and leave for about 10 minutes. Then add the cream, oil and yolk to it, and stir it up a little by hand. Gradually add flour to this mixture and mix the dough. Split the dough immediately into 5 parts and make each part into a ball shape.
Classic French Croissants With Cheese Step 2
- It is important that margarine (butter) is at room temperature, divide it into 5 equal parts. After that develop the first dough ball to the size of a large shallow plate and cover with a fifth of margarine. Repeat the process with the other balls and tie them to one another. Do not coat the last dough with margarine.
Classic French Croissants With Cheese Step 3
- When we finish, the dough is immediately flattened with a rolling pin into as large a circle as possible. We divide the circle into four parts. Each part is cut into triangles. Put cheese in every triangle and form a croissant/kittens. Sprinkle with the remaining margarine. Leave to grow until the croissant size is doubled. Cover with egg whites, sprinkle with sesame and bake at 200 degrees until it smells.
