I love to use my bread machine to make dough. Then I can make anything I want! Today’s Flash Back Friday post is one of our favorite recipes for croissant. It doesn’t make a lot – maybe 24. If you have a big enough bread machine make a double batch but I would because they freeze very well.
We love to make half of them plain and we put chocolate chips in side the other half for a delicious treat. You can also use them for Pigs in A Blanket.
Bread Machine Croissant
- ½ cup milk, warmed
- ¼ cup butter, cut into pieces
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 ¼ cups flour (you can add more during the dough cycle if it’s too runny)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ 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 the 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 shaped.
- 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.
What else would you put inside?
