How To Make Croissants

We had a very delicious Sunday morning, and wanted to share it with you all. This is our second attempt at making croissants and I must say, it went very well. We have just returned from a week in beautiful, sunny Lisbon and it really gave us the taste for delicious pastries. Portugal is famous for its pastries, especially the tiny custard tarts with flaky pastry (I think we were averaging about 3 a day!), so after two weeks of being back at home we thought we should bring the buttery goodness back into our lives once again. 

Croissants aren't technically difficult to make, they are just a little bit time consuming. The dough is made up of basic ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboard, and it involves rolling and 'turning' out the dough every hour and then leaving it for 8 hours to rest. With this is mind, it's best to make them before bed. 

We followed this recipe to make ours and we customised them (in true TWB style) in the morning. We stuffed them with Biscoff spread, Nutella, and topped some with flaked almonds. They made a very special Sunday morning treat, perfect for a lazy start to the day. Just what Sunday's are for, right? Have any of you guys tried making croissants before? How did they go?
