Last night, my mom and I took a mini-rendezvous to France - well, sort of...we took a croissant making cooking class at The Pantry at Delancey in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. It was so much fun! Not only did we learn how to make plain croissants from start to finish (quite the process!), but we baked almond, ham + cheese, pain aux raisins, and pain au chocolat. My mom and I were on a baking team; together we mixed the ingredients, rolled and refolded the dough, cut, and prepared about 12 croissants total. We devoured two of our efforts fresh out of the oven after they cooled slightly in the night air, and topped them with scrumptious plum jam, delicious!
WE. ATE. THEM. ALL. (over the course of 2 days, of course).
