Follow this simple formula to create croissants that you can bake fresh from the freezer. Just thaw, proof and bake for croissants with a tender, flaky inside and great butter flavor.

Prep Time: 2 hours, 48 minutes

Bake Time: 15 minutes

Instructions

Combine dry ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend for 1 minute on your mixer’s first speed then add remaining ingredients and continue to mix for 7 minutes on your mixer’s first speed speed, and then for 1 minute on your mixer’s second speed or until dough is about 85% developed. Then, let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

 

It’s important not to overmix the dough (overmixed dough can become weak and tear during sheeting). The dough will get plenty of extra development during the sheeting process. For best results, the dough must be cold out of the mixer. Final dough temperature should be maintained at 63°F (17.2°C).

 

Next, roll in the butter with one, double “four-fold” and then let rest for 45 minutes in a cooler at 40°F (4.4°C). Next, complete one, single “3 fold” and let rest again for 45 minutes in a cooler at 40°F (4.4°C). Now, gradually sheet the dough down to 5 mm and divide into 2.5 oz (70 g) portions to shape into classic croissants. Be careful not to mold too tightly.

 

Blast freeze for 20 minutes at -22°F (-30°C) and then place into a cooler to defrost overnight. Before baking, place croissants into a proofer set to 80°F (27°C) with 85 to 90% humidity for 45 minutes.

 

To bake, place croissants into an oven set to 370°F (187°C) and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until croissants are a deep, golden color. Remove from oven and let cool.

This classic recipe for European Danish is specially formulated for those desiring a frozen dough solution that will function as the perfect base for a variety toppings, glazes, and fillings. Garnish with fresh fruit or your favorite icing to create a range of sweet treats for your customers to enjoy.

Prep Time: 2 hours

Bake Time: 12-15 minutes

Instructions

Combine ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend for 4 minutes on your mixer’s first speed and then for 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until dough is about 85% developed. Maintain the dough temperature at 65°F (18.3°C).

 

Next, laminate the dough with three single folds keeping 1 hour in between turns and placing the dough in the cooler between folds. Please note, the roll-in butter amount for lamination will be based on the dough weight (50% for traditional Danish and 25% for German-style Danish). Do not go below 10 mm during lamination. Next, gradually sheet the dough down to 5 mm and scale as desired.

 

At this point, place the portioned dough into a blast or spiral freezer and store until ready to use. Before using, remove dough from the freezer and place into a cooler overnight to thaw.

 

Once thawed, shape dough as desired and then place into a proofer set to 80°F (27°C) with 85-90% humidity for 45 minutes. To bake, place Danish into a rack or revolving oven set to 370°F (187°C) and bake for 12-15 minutes until Danish have a golden color. Remove from oven, let cool and garnish as desired.
