Master pastry chef Jean-Yves Charon crafts our croissants in the traditional French style, using his buttery, award-winning puff pastry, cutting and shaping the pastries by hand. Shipped frozen, they are easy to prepare—just let rise overnight and then bake. The croissants emerge from the oven with flaky, golden-brown exteriors, delicate interiors and an irresistible buttery aroma. There’s no simpler way to bring a taste of France to the breakfast table.

- Use & Care
- The croissants ship frozen with dry ice. Please take care not to touch the dry ice with bare hands. Upon receipt, remove croissants from the shipping container and place in the freezer, where they will keep for up to one month.
- Place the frozen croissants, rounded side up, on a nonstick or parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover loosely with a sheet of parchment paper. Let rise at room temperature (68° to 72°F) for about 9 hours or overnight. Each croissant should measure about 4 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" high. Preheat an oven to 375°F. Remove the top parchment paper. If desired, lightly beat 1 egg with 1 Tbs. cold water and, using a pastry brush, brush the croissants with the egg wash. Bake the croissants until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NadiaB from Not what they used to be I started buying these croissants years ago when they still came direct from the baker. They were splendid, buttery and flakey, they were like having a little bit of France waiting in my freezer. Then they started coming from Williams Sonoma using a slower delivery. And then something happened to the quality. They no longer had the wonderful buttery flavor. The ingredients still say all butter, but they certainly no longer taste that way. So sorry to see W-S sacrificing quality on so many of its products.Date published: 2019-03-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry105 from Great breakfast treat We've been buying these for several years and unlike some reviews here, we've had no issues with proofing and final baking. we enjoy them as part of our early breakfast.Date published: 2019-02-20Rated 2 out of 5 by Jodie from Trader Joe's has for much cheaper without shipping While these are very good and i have purchased for the past several years at Christmas for friends and family, I'm going to rethink whether it's worth it anymore since Trader Joe's has them in stock without the excessive shipping costs.Date published: 2019-02-18Rated 1 out of 5 by Cori from Just ordinary croissants - nothing special. I was so excited to treat my family & myself to Oprah's favorite croissants - croissants that would taste like, or maybe even be superior to, some of the best croissants I've had from French bakers. Well, these are not. I didn't know why they just weren't up to snuff until I read some of the reviews from purchasers who noticed there was a definite downgrade in the quality from the croissants that used to be available. It's not that they taste bad - they just taste ordinary. Why disappoint customers? If Williams-Sonoma can no longer offer the product that everyone used rave about, would it perhaps be better to just discontinue offering these run-of-the-mill croissants?Date published: 2019-02-16Rated 1 out of 5 by JuicyJosie from Rip off I have been buying this item for a while now. Last few times i bought them, i received two boxes, this time i received one which comes out to almost two dollars a croissont. I will NEVER buy this item again.Date published: 2019-02-13Rated 1 out of 5 by Casper from Disappointed! I thought it might just be me, but seeing some of the other reviews, I realize it is not. I have bought these before and loved them enough that I told my daughter-in-law about them and that they tasted just like the croissants I remember getting in France....and then received two boxes from her as a Christmas gift. I was VERY excited. However, they are not the same as my previous orders...and my husband agrees. They don't have the real french croissant flavor and flakiness that the previous ones had. I thought maybe it was because they had to make them in such bulk for Christmas that the quality had slipped. However, based on my experience with these, as well as reading other reviews from people who feel the same, I am not sure I will order more. They are much too expensive, even on sale, to test just to see if they have improved. There are other brands out there that are definitely better than this latest batch. Sorry, but I am so disappointed!Date published: 2019-01-27Rated 2 out of 5 by Alano from What’s changed Like some other reviewers have bought these every Christmas for years. This year they were flat and oily.. very disappointing as not inexpensive.Date published: 2019-01-05Rated 1 out of 5 by Silligoose from What happened? We’ve had these croissants every Christmas morning for the past 10 years. This year they were totally different. My whole family was so disappointed. They were not flaky or buttery... more bagel like than croissant like. Please bring the old recipe back!Date published: 2018-12-31
Is there a proven convection oven temperature and time for the Classic croissants?Hi Hershey, Here are the baking instructions: Place frozen croissants on a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing them approx. 4" apart. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to thaw and rise for at least 3 hours or overnight (alternatively, you can leave croissants to thaw and rise at room temperature for approx. 4–6 hours; do not exceed 8 hours). Remove thawed croissants from refrigerator and let sit at room temperature to rise and proof until nearly double in size, approx. 2–3 hours. Preheat convection oven to 375°F or conventional oven to 400°F. Lightly brush the tops of the croissants with an egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tsp. water). Bake until puffed and golden, approx. 18–20 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5–10 minutes before serving.Date published: 2019-03-11
