CRIS’s CROISSANTS:
cook while pondering laws
which should be repealed
and stricken from the books!

Once we get past some of this slippery and dangerous
rain/snow rain/snow rain/snow weather
in the hills of southeastern Vermont,
I am hoping to find Vermonters
willing to go on local community access telelvision
to discuss politics with me!

Let’s talk!

Meanwhile,
here is a recipe with no guarantee.

Cris’s CROISSANTS

Warm a cup milk with
1 tablespoon butter and
1 tablespoon maple syrup and
1/2 teaspoon salt.

Add a heaping tablespoon of yeast
dissolved in 1/3 cup very warm water
with 1 tablespoon maple syrup.

Stir the ingredients all together
and knead in
2 1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour.

Cover with a damp cloth.
Set aside to rise for 2 hours.

Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Roll it out 1/4 inch thick.

Heat 1 cup butter only until
slightly soft.
Dot the surface of the dough
with the butter.

You can also add to the
buttered surface
other ingredients:
small amounts of
chocolate chips,
chopped dried cranberry,
pecans or walnuts.

Fold the dough in various
ways, roll, fold, be creative.
Chill the dough for 2 hours.
Cut into shapes.

Bake for 10 minutes at
350 degrees
then keep checking to see
if they are crispy.

You can turn the oven off
before they are completely
done to save electricity
because the oven will still
hold the heat.
