This is a recipe for a small batch of croissant. Today I threw them in my bread machine during our homeschool break so I could make pigs in a blanket for lunch. After I ran out of hot dogs I filled most of them with some mini chocolate chips. They really are nothing fancy. They are super easy and they work! They aren’t very flaky like canned croissant but they are just as good and really easy to make! (Sorry for the bad picture. I would have taken another but they are pretty much gone 🙂 )
It makes about 24 croissant – I broke the dough into 3 balls and made about 8 per ball. You can make them smaller or larger depending on what you need them for. Feel free to double the recipe. I use this smaller recipe so I don’t eat them all. You could freeze what you don’t use and eat them with the other things you have batch cooked.
Bread Machine Croissant
- 1/2 cup milk, warmed
- 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 1/4 cups flour (you can add more during the dough cycle if it’s too runny)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 Tablespoons yeast
- Place all the ingredients in your bread machine. I always put wet ingredients first and yeast last. Set to dough cycle. (I put he milk in the microwave for about 15 seconds.)
- When it’s finished (about 90 minutes) take it out of your machine and lay it on a floured surface. I use a pizza cutter to cut into 3 balls
- Roll each ball into a circle (maybe about 9 in in diameter). I am really bad at this. Half of my croissants are odd shapped.
- Add (hot dogs, chocolate chips, butter, nothing, etc,) to the croissants.
- Start to roll at the top of the triangle – ending at the point.
- Place on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes (depending on size). I check them about have way through and flip them over so they brown on all sides.
Serve warm and enjoy!
I think my kids have eaten most of the pigs in the blankets and many of my chocolate filled crossiants. What else would you put inside your crossiants?
