  1. Hello as already written on another page for this recipe, it looks very appealing.. One thing though has to be precised : croissants are not a French dessert. They are offered only for breakfast. Their creation is related to Vienna history (almost invaded by the Turks) so originally they were not even French 😊. SO no problem at all with the recipe, just for you to know about French food culture.
    You have plain croissant (curved) and the best ones “au beurre” straight. Sometime they are topped with toasted almonds, confectioner’s sugar and even filled with chocolate ( but you also have “pains au chocolat”). Not served as a dessert at the end of a meal.
