Web exclusive: Available online only.
- Manufacturer: Gaston’s Bakery
- Includes: 7 plain ready-to-bake croissants; 8 chocolate ready-to-bake croissants
- Made in USA
- Croissant ingredients: unbleached bread flour, butter, all-natural yeast, white cane sugar, dry milk, salt
- Chocolate croissant ingredients: unbleached bread flour, butter, all-natural yeast, white cane sugar, dry milk, salt, chocolate baton (sugar, cocoa paste, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soya lecithin, vanilla flavor)
- Take the croissants out of the freezer and let them rise overnight; leave on a baking tray on a kitchen counter for 6 to 8 hours. Time will depend on room temperature.
- Gently brush on egg wash before baking (scramble an egg in a bowl, add one tablespoon of water and brush the mixture on top of each croissant with a pastry brush).
- Preheat oven to 375°F and bake for 15 minutes. Let croissants cool before serving.
- Using a Silpat will keep croissants from sticking to the pan.
- For ovens with a proofing setting, allow croissants to thaw completely at room temperature, then place them in the oven to proof at 90°F (check on proofing croissants regularly to monitor proofing progress).
- Convection cooking will bake croissants more evenly. When baking in a convection oven, be aware that cooking times may be somewhat lower and monitor croissants to prevent over-baking.
It was to meet this rising demand from restaurants and grocers that Gaston’s Bakery was created. Using only the finest ingredients and free of both preservatives, artificial flavors and colors, these products are handmade and baked in stone-deck ovens using artisan techniques.
Now everyone who appreciates great-tasting pastries can enjoy Gaston’s baked goods at home. The croissants are shipped frozen so you can bake them after allowing them to thaw and rise, bringing the aromas and tastes of a French pâtisserie to your kitchen.
