      These are quite tasty but not quite as light and fluffy as I thought they would be.But none the less there will be none thrown away!The salt was listed as an ingredient but omitted in the directions so I just added it in with step # 6. I'm looking forward to having these with some jam spread on them...mmmm.

      I was looking for a recipe that would produce the very light and fluffy croissants with lots of flaky layers - like in the grocery store bakery. They did not turn out like this, but they were still very delicious, more like a dinner roll/crescent roll than a croissant that I would have for breakfast. A comment about the recipe ingredients, it lists the 1.5 teaspoons salt, but it doesn\\\'t say where that should be added, I just threw it in there at some point.

      AMAZING! DELICIOUS! Very easy recipe! I got a little impatient waiting while the dough set in the fridge, and even more so while the croissants has to rise, but so worth the wait!!! After the first set in the oven I lowered the temperature to 350° to keep the bottoms from getting too dark. I made about two dozen and have 5 left, in the span of 4 hours and only 3 people. Very flakey in the middle, and they pull apart just the way croissants are supposed to. Next time I think I will roll in a little diced ham or turkey and some cheese, maybe swiss or cheddar. Great recipe with lost of potential adaptations. Thanks so much for sharing such a delicious and easy recipe.
