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.

The supermarket ones always fill the croissant hole in my tummy!  (Woolworths)

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
