  1. I really enjoyed making the croissants, and ou really missed out on something good here! Thanks for a great challenge!

  2. Great job being the host kitchen, even without a kitchen. It was wonderful to have a reason to try making croissants. Thanks!

  3. No doubt you will soon be a picture of beauty and industry, whipping up croissants in your delightfully finished kitchen the French countryside while lavender sways in the springtime breeze.
    This does look like a great recipe, I have always wanted to make them too – although I am a little nervous..

  4. Pretty much lots of croissants and such-like. I’ll have to give one of them a go, pastry isn’t my forte!

  5. Thanks for this wonderful challenge and search for le croissant! I had fun making them. Thanks for hosting this month.

  6. Pretty sneaky, Katie!! But I do think holding up the finishing of the kitchen is a bit drastic as a way to avoid baking the croissants.
    I am SO behind in just about everything that it looks like I’m once again a BBBwB with this. Although, the idea of croissants au chocolat is very very tempting.

  7. Well Katie, I for one can’t wait to eat those croissants you have in that box 😉
    Thanks for letting us all huddle around the box, hot tea in our hands and chat this month.

  8. Just when I thought all the good fairies were sent your way to help you finish your kitchen… (they’re certainly not in my attic I assure you!).
    Imagine, you install that kitchen (see Natashyas for the description) unpack the oven and there they are: gorgeous croissants!
    Thanks for the challenge Katie, I enjoyed it!

  9. Poor Katie, working hard while we eat ” your ” croissants.
    It was a great recipe and thanks for making me do this : Like every-body else..always wanted but never did.But we did .Thanks !

  10. Lynn, when I get my kitchen…. Wow, I have a lot of catching up to bake… Or something like that..
    Ilva, I was actually going to try doing them in my toaster oven… Until I realized that I also didn’t have a mixer or rolling pin or baking sheet or….
    Sara, that the one I really wanted to try… I will yet!
    Natashya, from your fingertips to god’s ear…
    Scott, not mine either – but croissants are a worthy goal (I think)
    Lien, thanks – it was fun!
    Elizabeth, you should have seen what I did to get out of term papers!
    Breadchick, that box has been well used as a table – even if the oven can’t be used…
    Tanna, I make lunch on that box every day!
    Monique, that’s the fun part about the challenge – and not doing it alone. I can’t wait to get back in the game.
    Rosemary, let me know when you do ‘-))

  11. Oh dear, what a pain when Real Life stops you achieving your blogging ambitions… The image of you huddling by the warm stove reminds me of when I cuddled up to my wachig machine in November when the boiler stopped working for a week…

  13. I love croissants and have been meaning to find a good recipe to get the courage up to baking them. Yours look fantastic, perfect flakey texture, i love it!

  14. Jeanne, I’ve been thinking about moving the clothes dryer into the bedroom and not venting it… to get the heat!
    Jenn, Give them a try – and let me know!

  15. I have a bunch of croissant recipes I’ve been meaning to try – this may motivate me!
