I see lots of Butter in your future!

Croissants used to scare me... the yeast!!! what if I break the butter! how firmly do I roll! I procrastinated for about a year before I learned how to make them. And learn I did... more than 20 different batches over the course of 3 weeks for a condensed fast mastering of these flaky mounds of amazingness.

I had my mom ship me flour and yeast from the US so I could 100% tell my American clients that this is EXACTLY what you should use.  Because the flour... AND the yeast... oh yes... AND the kind of butter makes a big difference in your results. I experimented with flours in France too (bien sur) so that all of my clients know what is best to use no matter their location.

I also tested out different proofing methods, and the easiest way to explain dimensions and the butter block.

In typical Molly-style, in this video, you'll see a step-by-step version of making gorgeous croissants and pain au chocolat at home. We'll go over making the dough and the butter block, how to laminate (fold), shaping croissants and pain au chocolat, proofing methods, and baking. 

I'll put you at ease and help your confidence soar as I break down exactly what you need to do.

I cannot wait to see your results from this fabulous pre-recorded class coming April 1st.

Happy Baking!

Molly

I'm in the midst of making my first batch ever of croissants right now! The videos are so methodical and engaging. Being able to start and stop along the way to take notes, go try out a technique, or go back to review something is so helpful. It brings the recipe on paper to life and makes what seemed overwhelming immediately accessible. I didn't expect making croissants to be so straightforward but should have known it would be. Because one of Molly's many gifts is how confidence inspiring she is while you're learning something entirely new.

This Croissant class is truly a triumph. A+ !! I have been baking with Molly for over a year. She is knowledgeable, fun and most of all she really cares about her followers being successful. She provides unbelievable personal interaction through emails and messaging. It is obvious she spent hours preparing for this class . She is not only providing personal instruction but printable materials to supplement the learning. I would have never thought of making croissants and pain au Chocolat until now. Thanks Molly !
