I was very excited to see the challenge this month! One of my favorite things about traveling in France is starting my mornings with a fresh croissant. Good croissants are hard to find where I live, so I always wanted to learn to make my own. These croissants are flaky and buttery, and made the perfect breakfast! Unfortunately, it's a long process, and I probably won't have time to make them again any time soon, but I'm glad to finally have learned how to make these quintessential French pastries.
