Mini Homemade French Croissants

Croissants are known to be kind of a process to create. This recipe does involve some effort and time, but the results are totally worth it, I promise! Fresh croissants are flaky and warm and deliciously full of butter! Mmmm who wouldn't want that? lf you are vegan, you could try substituting butter for chilled coconut oil and milk with almond milk. I hope you give these a try, enjoy :)

Mini Homemade French Croissants Recipe:

Yield: 8 Large or 14 Minis

Cook Time: 4 Hr


- 2 Cups AP Flour

- 4 ½ Tbsp Granulated Sugar

- 2 tsp Active Dry Yeast

- 1 ½ tsp Salt

- ¾ Cup Butter, Chilled

- ½ Cup Milk or Water

- Egg Wash (1 Egg + 1 tsp Cold Water, Mixed)

- *Powdered Sugar


1. Whisk flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in a large bowl.

2. Add butter to flour and blend using a fork or pastry cutter.

3. Add milk and stir together or mix using a dough hook attachment until dough forms into a ball.

4. Place dough on a lightly floured plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate dough for about an hour.

5. Next, roll out dough into a long rectangle on a lightly floured surface.

6. Fold the dough into thirds, rotate 90 degrees and repeat rolling out. Place dough in freezer for five minutes. *It is very important that the butter doesn’t melt when folding, the dough won’t flake if the butter melts*

7. Repeat the folding process (Steps 5-6) and return to freezer for an additional five minutes.

8. Wrap dough once again and refrigerate for an additional hour.

9. Finally, roll out dough into a long rectangle (~20 in wide and 40 in long). Cut dough into long and skinny triangles, making sure the widest part is about 5 in for large croissants and 2.5 in for minis.

10.Cut a small notch into the wide part of each croissant, about ½ in deep. Roll from the wide end to the skinny end, keeping the croissant dough tight as you roll. Tuck the end underneath croissant.

11.Place rolls on parchment or Silpat, cover with a damp towel and proof in a warm area for 1 hour. Let proof until you can see the layers in the dough beginning to form.

12.Preheat oven to 375F.

13.Brush croissants with egg wash. Bake for 15-20 minutes for large croissants and 7-9 minutes for mini croissants. Bake until golden brown, enjoy!


- You can also create Ham & Cheese, Chocolate, or even Nutella Filled Croissants! Simply add about 2 Tbsp of your desired fillings into the “wide” area of the croissants and roll up. *Use 1 Tbsp for Minis!
