cinnamon sugar croissants


In my opinion, the only thing better than fresh, flaky buttery croissants are cinnamon sugar croissants. You all know about my obsession cinnamon, and these croissants are my favorite pastry in the universe -- and that sure is saying something if you know anything about my obsession with pastries! This is a variation on my classic croissant recipe (which you can find here). This recipe produces perfect croissants with a pillowy interior and a crisp, shattering crust. To take these already luxurious pastries to an amazing, cinnamon-sprinkled level, I added a generous sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar before I rolled them into crescents, and another sprinkling on top after the second egg wash, right before popping them in the oven to bake. I know making croissants can be intimidating at first, but the result is so rewarding. My mom commented that the rich, buttery aroma accompanied by the intensified fragrance of cinnamon sugar was the best way to wake up early on the Saturday morning that I made these, and to this day these is one of my family's all time favorite breakfast treats. I hope you enjoy my favorite breakfast pastry as much as I do!
With love,
Erica
