Rated 5 out of 5 by JPrice from My Favorite! I bought the Le Marais pastry sampler and this was my favorite! It does take practice to proof the pastries just right but when you get it right...MAGNIFIQUE!Date published: 2019-05-12Rated 1 out of 5 by wonks from Flat, greasy and underwhelming. I made these this morning. I let them "rise" overnight on a cookie sheet on a silpat and covered lightly with parchment paper. In the morning ( they hadn't risen at all ) I preheated the oven to 375 degrees, lightly coated them with egg wash and water as instructed; ( when the temperature of the oven had reached 375 so they wouldn't be weighed down too long with the moisture ) and baked according to their directions. After 18 minutes they still weren't done, were flat as a pancake and looked nothing like their photo. I cooked them a few minutes longer and took them out when I thought they'd burn at the ends if left in any longer. They grew larger in the oven but looked very amateurish. And the middle was mushy and the ends were tasteless. I've purchased Classic and Chocolate Croissants from Jean-Yves Charon on the WS site and they always turn out GREAT! I'm sticking with that brand as Le Marais isn't comparable in any way, shape or form. Or taste.Date published: 2018-04-28
