Preparation

  • Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love croissants... ...and the opportunity to bake my own I couldn't pass up! Let me say that it took 3 orders to get them where they didn't arrive already thawed and risen! So yay for customer service! Finally I got to let them rise over night...they still looked gigantic...and I think next time I will let them sit for a little less time. I did do the egg wash and they looked perfect. I want them to look like the ones pictured! ;=)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why would I make these from scratch? I bought these a couple of weeks ago and had them for the first time yesterday morning. Oh my goodness! They're as good as the ones at my favorite French cafe in NYC and possibly better -- and that's before adding the fact that I don't need to leave home to get them! They arrived thoroughly frozen, with solid dry ice left in the shipping container. The container itself is a large styrofoam cooler that impressed me greatly as well. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT QUALITY Friends sent us the classic croissants (Jean-Yves Charon) as a holiday gift. We were surprised at how they ballooned in size, first overnight, then even more in the oven. Delicious. Fresh and hot, better-tasting than our local bakery, and we can always keep them on hand in the freezer. When WS has a sale, they are cheaper than our local bakery too. Be sure always to brush with beaten egg before baking - gives you a beautiful dark crisp crust, like Paris. We've ordered more!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not like they used to be I have purchased these croissants a number of times (regular and chocolate), but either something has changed or I received two bad batches. They seem to rise fine, but no matter how long I cook them (once I left them in a bit too long) they still seem doughy on the inside. You take one bit and they flatten like a pancake. Unacceptable for these expensive pastries. I won't be ordering these any longer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Late but excellent quality Ordered them at the beginning of December and just got them almost 5 weeks late, however they are so good they still gain 5 stars for the product. Opened the box, placed four on baking sheets lined with parchment paper overnight to thaw.... Next morning, 12 hours later, preheated the oven and popped them in. About 12 minutes in our oven we had wonderfully browned fresh croissants - better than any bakery for miles. They rose perfectly and were crisp, light and airy and not limp like so many bakeries around here have. These are the real deal. Such a nice treat for Sunday brunch at home. They can be frozen up to three months so we are ordering another box and planning Sunday brunch for the two of us for several months to come. Be sure to let them thaw overnight at least 12 hours at room temperature. I just popped them on the baking sheet and in the unheated oven overnight, then took them out while the oven pre-heated, and back in when the oven was ready. Very simple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven in a bite! I bought these for my mom who is my caregiver. I got up on Christmas day and surprised her with croissants and her Traverse City cherry preserves. They were buttery, flake and melt in you mouth goodness...I would recommend the croissants to the hardest to please foodies. This will be our new Christmas tradition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but not great Gave them 4 stars, they taste great, similar to my 'local' French bakery (Fresno, CA (an hour away)), but mostly air, unlike the bakery. (Maybe rose too much.) (Less expensive than this bakery too!) Recommend purchasing if you want fresh hot croissants on a moments notice, if can keep frozen until needed, and can have the time to thaw and allow to rise for 9 hours before baking. Bake quickly, so watch. They arrived in excellent condition, in an ice chest with dry ice. They are very small (~3"x1"), so repackaged into quart zip locks, 6 to a bag. Thawed/rose 6 immediately, so had same day fresh croissants. Spaced 6 (max.) to a cookie sheet on parchment paper. Needed the room on the sheet for considerable expansion when rising then baking.
