The recipe of happiness

Any Argentinian is capable of giving everything for a croissants. What about some homemade croissants? If you cheer up, we'll leave you the recipe.


Things that give happiness. Surely, among the top positions, all Argentines have the croissants. With latte, mate, ham and cheese... anyway, they're our doom. We usually looked for them in the bakery, but what if we made them at home?

We will not lie to you: it takes quite a while and you have to like kneading. But it's worth it. Making homemade croissants is something we should all try at least once in a lifetime. Something like “plant a tree, write a book, have a child and make croissants.”

Do you Cheers?


  • Flour 0000, 300 g
  • Milk, 225 cc
  • Butter Ointment, 200 g
  • Yeast, 25 g
  • Egg, 1
  • Sugar, 100 g
  • Honey, 15 g
  • Salt, 15 g


  • To begin with, put the warm milk in a bowl and dissolve the yeast until it is fully integrated. Reserve.
  • Place 250 g of flour in a bowl and give it a crown shape. Incorporate salt by the outer edges of the crown (so that it does not cross with yeast).
  • In the hollow of the crown, add sugar, egg, milk with yeast and honey. Start whipping with a fork, slowly, from the center to the edges, until a mass is formed.
  • Lower the preparation to the counter and continue kneading for a few more minutes, until it is finished integrating. Cover it with a repin and let it stand.
  • Make the filling: in a bowl, mix the butter ointment with 25 g of flour until they are fully integrated. Reserve.
  • Let's get back to the dough. With a kneading stick, stretch it over the counter until it is finite. In the middle of the dough, put the filling that we made in the previous step. Then bend the edges of the dough so that it is wrapped (those on the sides and those on the top and bottom). There's got to be a little package left. Wrap it in film and take it to the refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Once time has passed, to the allowance again. Without disassembling the little package, knead again until the dough is stretched again. Fold it again and take it to the fridge.
  • I repeated the previous step three times more (yes, three times more).

The Hour of Truth

  • I do now. Take the dough out of the refrigerator for the last time and stretch it until it is about 4 to 5 millimeters thick.
  • Cut the dough in the form of triangles with a blade. Arm the croissants by winding each triangle and bending the tips.
  • Butter a baking dish and place the croissants there. Let them rise to room temperature for 40 minutes, while the oven is heated to 200°.
  • Paint the croissants with egg and bake for about 30 minutes (or until golden brown).

Last Secret?

Yes ,

yes. you want them to really look like a bakery, you're going to have to add a Syrup. Bring equal measures of water and sugar to the fire until the sugar dissolve and form the syrup with which we are going to paint the croissants when be ready.

Be encouraged to do them. You can't believe it.
