Hi all

I want fresh yummy croissants for Xmas breakfast and don't know how to go about it. Attempted making them myself and that failed miserably :-(


So

-can you buy them from a wholesale bakery premade and ready to pop in the oven


- any good frozen supermarket varieties that taste good when cooked.
Thanks :-)

I just buy them from a good bakery and freeze them. They still taste great when gently re-heated in the oven original.gif

They freeze well so I have purchased them from my favourite bakery and frozen them immediately. Just reheat in the oven when you want them.

I buy them from my IGA already frozen. I think it's a four pack.
They taste delicious, last year I did crossiants with a chocolate sauce and almonds.

We've always just bought them fresh the day before.  If you give them a quick warm up in the oven they are fine.

I really like the woolworths bakery ones. Have had success with freezing them and then warming up in the oven  or defrosting in microwave

Sara Lee frozen have always worked a treat.

I still have withdrawals since they stopped doing their chocolate ones.... Back in the mid 1990's ohmy.gif

Our lical bakery is open for a couple hours Christmas morning, so we buy them fresh. Is that an option for you?

They did chocolate ones? I feel so deprived that I never even got to try them sad.gif

IsolaBella and KRT - get thee to a good French bakery and ask for 'Pain au Chocolat' (pronounced: pan O shock O la)

That's what you are craving!

Thanks, countrymel - but I was more thinking about missing out on the luxury of having pain au chocolat on hand WHENEVER I WANTED - no more having to walk that long 500m to the patisserie!... it's probably a good thing that they don't make them anymore original.gif

Thanks everyone. I might try the Sara Lee frozen ones first.
And for those having withdrawals. Woollies online had Sarah lee chocolate croissants listed as a "new" item when I checked. Looked like fresh rather than frozen ones but hopefully they are back :-)

Yes but the new ones are not the proper square ones..... Will try them though wink.gif

Countrymel ..... Having withdrawals as this time last year I was ordering real pain au chocolat in Paris. Also fixed my citron sucre crepe cravings too.

Damn you autocorrect
