Pastries

I haven’t been blogging much lately but that doesn’t mean that our kitchen has been quiet. A few months ago I started making pastries. Our butter consumption has skyrocketed and I think my work pals will die young, but at least we’ll be well fed.

Launching yelp.fr inspired me to tackel chocolate croissants. They turned out to be easier than I thought to make (lots of resting time), but they might be the best thing that’s ever come out of our kitchen. The Danish braid was quite tasty too – I made five of them (two apricot, one cheese, one strawberry, and one cherry).

The recipes are a bit too long and don’t make much sense without the diagrams, so I’m leaving them out. They’re both from ATK’s Family Baking Book.

    Those look beautiful, Wing, and I bet they were even tastier!

    For those unwilling to witness the amount of butter blessing these treats — TARTINE, everybody!
