The recipe for happiness

Any Argentine is able to give everything for a croissants. And for 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   croissants   . With coffee with milk, with mate, with ham and cheese... Anyway, they're our doom. In general we look for them in the bakery, but   What would happen if we did them at home?  

We're not going to lie to you: it takes quite a long time and you have to like to knead. But it's worth it. Do   homemade croissants   is something we should all try at least once in a lifetime. Something like “planting a tree, writing a book, having a child and making croissants.”

Are you cheering up?


  • 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, place the warm milk in a bowl and dissolve the yeast until it fully integrates. Book.
  • Place 250 g of flour in a bowl and give it a crown shape. Incorporate salt through 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. Begin to beat with a fork, gradually, 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 with a towel and let it rest.
  • Make the filling: in a bowl, mix the butter ointment with 25 g of flour until fully integrated. Book.
  • Let's go back to the dough. With a kneading stick, stretch it over the countertop until finite. In the middle of the dough, place the filling we made in the previous step. Then bend the edges of the dough so that it is wrapped (those on the sides and the top and bottom). There's got to be a little bit left. Wrap it in film and bring it to the refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Once time has passed, to the allowance again. Without disassembling the parcel, I knead again until the dough is stretched again. Fold it again and take her to the fridge.
  • I repeated the previous step three more times (yes, three times more).

The Hour of Truth

  • Now, yes. Take out the dough for the last time from the refrigerator and stretch it until it is about 4 or 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 settle the croissants there. Let them rise at room temperature for 40 minutes, while the oven is heated to 200°.
  • Paint the croissants with egg and put them in the oven for about 30 minutes (or until golden brown).

Last secret?

If you want them to really look like a bakery, you're going to have to add a syrup. Take equal measures of water and sugar to the fire until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is formed with which we will paint the croissants when they are ready.

  Be encouraged to do them. You're not gonna be able to believe it.
