About this Bake

I made croissant dough; learnt all about the tourage and turn double. I used crème pâtissière for the filling and soaked raisins in brandy. All the ingredients apart from the sugar were organic.

Top tip

Put ice in the bottom of the oven and use a spray bottle to create steam. You'll get a great rise and a crispy crust. Allow a decent amount of time and create a good-sized workspace beforehand! For good lamination, make sure you do the folding.
