I love Trader Joe's.
Their products are very tasty and cost worthy too.
On a shopping trip to Trader Joe's the other day I spotted something I had not seen before in the freezer section. Frozen Mini Croissants.
Apparently they've had these for quite a while. Where have I been?
So I grabbed a box and promptly put them in my cart. In the freezer they went, awaiting that special day when I could treat MGG and myself to some nice breakfast goodies.
Well that day came...and I must say that they were fabulous. Light, airy, flaky, buttery, and steamy hot!
The trick to them is to take them out the night before you want to eat them. Set them on a baking tray and leave them out overnight to rise (proof). When you take them out they are teeny, tiny.
The next morning...OMG they rose so MUCH! They are not really that 'mini' after all.
Then you just pop them in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes and you have some delicious, hot, croissants! They are soooo good, they are amazing they were frozen.
See for yourself.
We loved them so much we made turkey sandwiches with them for lunch....delicious!
Trader Joe's sells these for $3.99 for a box of 8. Pick up a box and treat yourself!
