  9. Sorry these were a bit of a bummer–high, soft flaky croissants are unbeatable! I’d love to make my own, as there really isn’t even a halfway decent bakery around here, but I’m not sure I’m willing to put in the work, haha. I CAN commit to making a raw recipe though, I took on your challenge this weekend and am posting about it tomorrow!

    • Thanks so much for doing the challenge! It is sad you don’t have a good bakery near you – that is the one thing we have a few of in our village 🙂

      • Yeah, the fresh baked goods are definitely lacking. There are a few places that do desserts–cupcakes/cakes/etc–well, but nowhere that just does good BREAD, rolls, croissants, etc. The grocery store is really the only option, and that’s just not real fresh bread.

        • our grocery store has a great bakery – but I seldom buy from there as I have a bread maker which means I know exactly what I am getting in my bread 🙂

  10. Even if you never made these again at least you will know that you can. That’s how I like to think about things that give a real sense of achievement to make but are so time-consuming or easily available in the shops that it doesn’t seem worth it to make them from scratch every time.

  11. What an event you had making these Tandy. I desperately wanted to get the croissant recipe from the local baker in Mauritius where Pete and I used to have our weekly coffee and croissant breakfast but alas. I have often wondered if the effort would be worth it.

    • personally, I don’t think the effort is worth it – but it is something I would recommend trying once 🙂

  12. Oh no you too!?! Your’s look pretty good in the picture. I haven’t had the time to re-try this month, the end of the month is going to be constant work for me so I probably won’t be able to enter the second batch into the challenge. (Whenever I get them finished). But I’ve come to the same conclusion as you did, they are inexpensive and easily available, not worth the trouble to make at home I think. I do have to make them successfully at least once though! How scary about the man in the yard, I’m glad it turned out to be nothing bad. Sometimes I wonder if we’ve been so scared by all the news stories of bad things that we overreact. I hate that I don’t feel comfortable walking around the neighborhood without my big dog. I’m glad you decided to post your attempt, so many people won’t post unless it’s successful.

    • I would much rather buy than bake some things – especially given the high work vs low cost of croissants. I still feel safe in my neighbourhood which is a good thing – but I would rather not have strange men walking around my property. Sadly, Dave and I come from a region which has a very high crime rate – and a very violent crime area, and even though we have lived here for 11 years, that sense of dread never goes away. Have a good end to your month 🙂
