Speedy Croissants
Method
  • Preheat oven to 180*C (350* F) Fan
  • In a mixer, add the cream cheese and butter
  • Beat with the paddle attachment until completely combined. (If you don’t have a mixer, you can whisk by hand.)
  • Add the flour and salt. Beat with the paddle attachment, until the dough becomes very soft
  • Divide the dough in to 3 pieces
  • Shape in to balls and cover with plastic wrap
  • Refrigerate for 1-2 hours to chill
  • While waiting for the dough to chill, combine all of the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and set aside until needed
  • When the dough is ready, roll out each piece in to a circular disc that is 40 cm in diameter. You will need to use a generous amount of flour to help you roll it out easier. The discs do not have to be completely circular
  • Cut each disc in to 8 equal sized pieces, as if cutting a pizza
  • Place a levelled teaspoon of the filling on the inner corner of each piece
  • Make an incision in each piece and roll, beginning from the circumference, to create a small croissant
  • Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Brush the tops with milk or with the beaten egg and sprinkle with some brown sugar if you like
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining 2 sheets of dough
  • Bake for about 25 minutes, until golden
  • When ready, remove from oven and immediately remove the croissants from the pan so they don’t stick from the sugar which will have caramelized and become very sticky
