Mini Croissants Ready to Bake
After the popularity of the Chocolate Croissants, I commented that I really wished they had a plain version, and a few posters agreed with me. Trader Joe's in all its wisdom, came out with a plain version, recently. 8 mini, ready to bake frozen croissants. You place them on a baking sheet, frozen, the nght before, and let rise and proof of overnight, and then bake off in the morning. They were quite good, although a bit flakier than I would like -- very close to puff pastry. The cookie sheet shown above is very small, meant for a toaster oven. I baked only 2 of the croissants. Here are the nutritional stats: 1 croissant is 150 calories, 3g protein, 16g carb, and 9g fat.

I don't think of them as mini size at all, once that pouf over night, they are quite big.
If anybody at TJ is listening, MAKE the chocolate croissants in mini size too!
Rumour has it that these (and the chocolate croissants) are made by Galaxy Desserts in California, who indeed make the Williams-Sonoma ones (there is a video on the WS website).
