Simple sweet croissant with Croissant Mix

Croissant dolce semplice con Croissant Mix

Recipe for 10 medium-sized croissants

Ingredients:

DUST:

  • 300g CROISSANT MIX
  • 50g Granulated sugar
  • 3g Fine salt
  • 20g Fresh yeast

LIQUIDS:

  • 220g Cold refrigerator water
  • 15g Seed oil
  • Aroma to taste

TO BROWSE:

  • 130g Puff Pastry Margarine

Procedure:

Gather all the "Solids" into the mixer bowl and start it at low speed with the hook.

Pour in the "Liquids" and continue to work for about ten minutes, switching to medium-high speed and cleaning, from time to time and with the machine stopped, the sides of the bowl, using a spatula and bringing the mixture back to the centre.

In the meantime, form a rectangle with the margarine, bringing it to a thickness of about 1cm. It doesn't need to be an extremely precise rectangle, the thickness just needs to be uniform. If you use NON-professional margarine or the room temperature is particularly high, it may help to leave the margarine in the freezer for 3/4 minutes.

Pour the mixture onto the table, and using the rice starch as a dusting, create a long, narrow rectangle, enough to insert the "block" of margarine and cover it. It is the classic system for incorporating the fat part into a dough for puff pastry or croissants.

Give two turns of three at a thickness of 7/8mm, without taking breaks between one turn and another and trying not to use too much rice starch as a duster, and in this case be careful to brush away the excess. If you have any doubts about how to do this, you can watch our video on the Angel Food YouTube channel, or any other video about laminating flaky dough: there are literally thousands of them on the Internet.

Roll out a rectangle with the long side max 46/48cm, but this time to a thickness of 5/6mm. Cut out 5 rectangles with a 9cm short side and cut two croissants from each one, cutting the rectangle lengthwise from one corner to the other. This will give you a total of 10 croissants.

Do not throw away any scraps of dough, but divide them into the center of each croissant before rolling it. Spray the surface of the triangle with water and roll, without tightening too much, to form the classic croissant, leaving the tip underneath when you place it in the baking pan.

Cover with a bag previously brushed with oil or non-stick spray and leave to rise at a temperature of 42°C for approximately 90 minutes, or at least until the volume triples.

Preheat the oven to 180°c, remove the tray from the bag and bake for approximately 23 minutes or until golden brown.

Leave to cool on a wire rack, and once cold, move to the freezer. It is possible to store the croissants at room temperature for about three days.

Note:

The final product will have a sweet but not cloying taste, so that it can also be combined with particularly rich fillings.

This recipe is not suitable for using butter for flaking. If you want to give a strong butter aroma to the product, there are three solutions: A) Use a 'melange' margarine, which contains a part of anhydrous butter (max 15%). B) Brush the surface of the product with clarified butter as soon as it comes out of the oven. C) Replace the oil in the recipe with the same weight of liquid clarified butter.
