Butter Croissants


  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the milk, sugar, yeast, flour, salt, the 30 g butter, and beat with the hook attachment for 5-8 minutes, until the dough is thick.  
  • Add it into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator for 12 hours to rest.
  • Place the cold butter between two pieces of parchment paper, and roll it out with a rolling pin, so to create a 15x15 cm square.
  • Roll out the dough 25x25 cm, add the butter in the middle, and cover it with the excess dough, like a folder.
  • With a rolling pin, roll out until you get a 15x50 cm rectangle. Fold it in three, like a folder, and transfer into a baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for 40 minutes.
  • Follow the same process three more times in order to create several layers of dough and butter. When it’s the last time, it will have to remain in the refrigerator for 6 hours.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and cut in half.
  • Roll out in a 18x50 cm rectangle and divide it into 5 strips 10x18 cm. Then, cut them diagonally.
  • Roll from the longer side all the way to the corner, and spread some water to stick together.
  • Transfer into a baking pan lined with parchment paper, cover them with a towel, and allow 1 hour for them to rise.
  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (392ο F) set to fan.
  • Bake for 5 minutes. Then, lower the heat to 180ο C (356ο F) and bake for 15 more minutes.
  • Let them cool for 5-10 minutes, and serve with icing sugar.


It would be good to wear gloves so that your hands’ temperature doesn’t go through the butter and melts it.
