Croissant dough

  • Put the remaining ingredients into a stand mixer, add the combined liquids and knead for approximately 10-12 minutes.
  • Let the dough rise for 45 minutes at 22°C, then laminate the dough, giving it 2 single turns in order to eliminate the air produced during fermentation and so that it fits onto a 60 x 40 cm baking sheet.
  • Chill overnight at 0°C.
  • The next day, remove the butter and dough from the fridge at the same time, place the butter on top of the dough and give it 1 double turn and 4 single turns.
  • Chill for at least 20 minutes at 0°C.
