Sunday morning there is still sun outside but not that hot as the beginning of fall. Despite the cold weather there is a warm feeling and fresh aroma in the air, to wake you up, coming up from the oven today. If you need the cozy warm feeling in the weekend check the recipe for the feta cheese croissant.
- 600g flour
- 4 tsp oil
- 2 tsp salt
- 3 eggs – 2 for the dough and 1 for glaze
- 300ml milk
- 2 tsp powder yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 300g feta cheese
Warm the milk but do not bring it to boil, remove from the heat and the sprinkle 2 tsp yeast to the top and add the sugar and one tsp flour. Stir the mixed ingredients for a minute until you dissolve the yeast and the sugar in warm milk, then cover with towel and leave for 10 min. In the meantime sift the flour and make a small hole in it. Put the salt, the eggs and slowly add the milk with the already diluted ingredients. Slowly mix all the ingredients until you got a ball of fluffy dough. Once ready cover with towel and leave for one hour.
Once the dough is fermented and ready cut it and make 4 small balls. Roll out every each of the dough balls then cut it in a square shape and the remaining parts add to the other balls, then cut in triangles shape pieces like showing the picture. Crumble the feta cheese and put it on top of the triangles. Roll every triangle piece in a shape of croissants and put on pan. You can cover the pan with a baking sheet or place oil on the top of the pan and then a sprinkle a spoon of flour so you croissants will not be burnt. Also put a egg yolk on the top of the croissants before putting them into the oven and this will give them as gold and nice colour. Place in the preheated oven (180º) for 25-30 min.
Once ready take out of the oven, leave to chill few minutes and serve. The small croissants are perfect for a weekend breakfast, serve with coffee or tea in the afternoon or even as a treat while watching movie.
