Garlic Butter Croissants

Want to "spice up" croissants?

Take 1/2 a stick of room temperature softened butter (your choice - low fat, no salt, salt, whatever you choose) (or the equivalent in margarine ...) add 1 1/2 teaspoons of parsley (fresh or dried) and 1 Tablespoon of garlic (minced) (fresh or jarred) .. however, if you use fresh, you may need less - depending on how strong you want the flavor to be.


Using a fork, whip the butter in a bowl, slowly add parsley and garlic, to taste - and set aside.


Open and lay out the croissants, as directed - lightly spread the whipped butter onto the dough triangles - roll as directed, and curve into croissant shape.



Cook as directed (generally on 375* for between 11 and 13 minutes - middle rack of the oven - or until crispy and brown)



Mike and Emily refuse to eat croissants any other way.
