Whacking Butter

Croissant dough beginning its long (five and a half) hour rise.

Dough on Grandma’s Table

It’ll spend some time in the fridge before we whack and smear butter, work it into the dough, cut the stuff into precise geometric shapes and shape it into horns. My grandmother’s table is the perfect spot to knead dough, but I don’t think she ever would have made a croissant in her life!
