Step 1
Combine the Orange (1) , Honey (1 Tbsp) , and Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp) together and let marinate for at least 4 hours.
Step 2
Dissolve the Fresh Yeast (1/2 cup) into the Milk (1/2 cup) .
Step 3
Add the Type 0 Flour (1 cup) , Type 00 Flour (3/4 cup) , Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup) , along with the aroma mix.
Step 4
Knead dough until it starts to come together, add in the Egg (1) , and mix until it is all absorbed.
Step 5
Add the Salt (3/4 tsp) and knead for a few more minutes.
Step 6
Next, start incorporating the Butter (3 Tbsp) , wait for it to be absorbed completely into the dough before adding more. Knead until you get a smooth and elastic dough.
Step 7
Transfer the dough into a clean container and let it double in size at room temperature. I left my dough for 8 hours to double in size.
Step 8
Next, move it into your fridge for 4 hours.
Step 9
Roll out the chilled dough into a rectangular shape, spread the top with Butter (3 Tbsp) .
Step 10
Fold now into 3. Turn it 90 degrees and fold into 4.
Step 11
Move the dough into the fridge for 1 hour then repeat the folds of 4 for 3 more times, with 1 hour in the fridge in between each fold.
Step 12
Divided the dough into 4 equal parts, roll each into a circle. Melt the remaining Butter (2 Tbsp) and brush it on top of each circle.
Step 13
Dust with Cacao Powder (to taste) . Stick the circles of dough on top of each other. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Step 14
Gently roll out the dough to slightly flatten it out. Cut it into 8 triangles.
Step 15
Roll each triangle from the wider edge toward the narrowest one.
Step 16
Let rest at room temperature for 2 hours or until almost doubled in size.
Step 17
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 18
Brush with a mixture of egg yolk and Milk (as needed) .
Step 19
Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 20-30 minutes or until the croissants are nice and golden-brown in color.
