Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Heat the Milk (1 1/2 cups) in the Panasonic Microwave Oven for about 90 seconds to get it to the perfect temperature for the yeast. Crumble the Fresh Yeast (3 Tbsp) into it and let it bloom in the milk for 5 minutes.
Step 2
While the yeast blooms, measure out with a kitchen scale and whisk together the Bread Flour (2 cups) , All-Purpose Flour (2 cups) , Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) , and Salt (1/2 Tbsp) in a large mixing bowl.
Step 3
Then whisk the yeast into the milk to make sure it is dissolved. Pour the yeasty milk into the dry ingredients and stir it all together thoroughly with a big, sturdy spoon until it comes together into a gorgeous ball of dough.
Step 4
Cover it with plastic wrap and set it in the refrigerator to ferment and rise for at least 8 hours or up to overnight.
Step 5
Once you make the dough, you can also form the butter slab. Lay out a big piece of plastic wrap and lightly flour it. Lay out the Butter (1 1/4 cups) on one half of it and flour the top of the butter as well. Bring the other half of plastic over the top and lightly press the butter out with your hands into a thin rectangle in between the plastic. Put it in the refrigerator to become solid again and it will be ready when the dough is!
Step 6
When the dough is ready it is time for the elbow grease. Punch it down and turn it out onto a well-floured, clean surface. Roll it out into a big rectangle at least double the size of your butter slab. Place the butter slab in the middle of it on an angle and then fold the sides of the dough over the butter so that the slab is completely enveloped in the dough.
Step 7
Roll the dough out a little thinner to work the butter into the dough, then fold it into thirds like a letter. Flatten it out and roll it out again into a large rectangle, then fold it into thirds again. Flatten it out again and wrap the dough in plastic. Let it rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours. This counts as two turns, which is the most important part of laminating the dough into those flaky layers.
Step 8
When the 2 hours is up, repeat the process again of doing two turns with rolling out the dough, folding it, rolling it out again and folding it again. Refrigerate it and let it rest again for 2 hours. This will start to take some real elbow grease and lots of bench flour since you are starting to form some serious layers.
Step 9
When that final 2 hours is up, punch down the dough and cut it in half. Set one half back in the refrigerator while you work with the first half and get out two sheet trays.
Step 10
Line the sheet trays with silicone mats or parchment. Take that first half and roll it out into a rectangle that measures about 10x18 inches. Cut that rectangle into 6 big triangles by making diagonal cuts along the length of the rectangle to form the triangles
Step 11
Place a tablespoon of Almond Paste (3/4 cup) at the wide base of each triangle. Then roll each one up tightly from the base to the pointy end, pulling gently on it as you roll it so that it is tightly rolled. Place them staggered on one of the baking sheets.
Step 12
Repeat this whole process with the other half of dough and fill the other baking sheet. Let them sit and rise at room temperature for an hour.
Step 13
When the hour is up, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 14
Whisk the Egg (1) , Almond Extract (1/4 tsp) , and Water (1 dash) together in a bowl and brush it really generously on each formed croissant. Sprinkle each croissant with Sliced Almonds (to taste) and lightly press them in so that they stick to the egg wash.
Step 15
Bake the croissants for 30-40 minutes, until they are completely golden and crisp. Let them cool a bit and then sprinkle each of them with Powdered Confectioners Sugar (to taste) . Serve warm with great coffee and enjoy! Cooking results may vary depending on microwave oven used.
