Cooking croissants with cherries:
Step 1: Prepare the Cherry
Rinse the berries properly, rinse all the branches with leaves and dry the cherry. Then use the knife to remove the bones. It’s very simple: squeeze the cherry in your fingers, stick the tip of the knife into the hole that remains after removing the twig, feel for the bone and just push it out, it will fly like a cork from champagne. Just pre-put on something that is not afraid to get dirty, as the berries are very sprayed with juice during this procedure.
Step 2: form the croissants.
On a prepared and lightly floured surface, lay out thawed puff pastry. Roll it and cut into equal triangles, as shown in the photo.
Lay out prepared cherries on the base of the triangles and pull the edges, twisting the dough and shaping it into a bagel. Form all croissants this way, filling them with cherries.
Step 3: bake croissants with cherries.
Spread the baking paper on the bottom of the heat-resistant mold and place the croissants on it. In case you are using yeast puff pastry, cover the blanks on top with another sheet of paper and let them rest for 15-20 minutes. Croissants from dough without yeast can immediately be sent to bake.
Set the oven to warm up 180 degrees Celsius. In a clean bowl, beat the yolk and grease the resulting mass on top of the croissants. Send your baked puff pastry to the preheated oven on 20 minutes.
Step 4: prepare the icing.
While croissants are baked, in a deep bowl, dilute the sifted icing sugar with hot water. Mix until a clear and thick homogeneous mass is obtained.
Important: Cook the icing no sooner than a couple of minutes before you cover the finished croissants.
Step 5: pour croissants with cherry icing.
Take the croissants covered with a golden crust with a cherry and use a silicone brush to apply the icing on top of them. Leave the baking to cool to room temperature and only then serve it to the table.
Step 6: serve the croissants with cherries.
Serve croissants with cherries as a dessert. Transfer them to a large dish and make fragrant tea. It's so simple and unpretentious to cook delicious homemade pastries from fresh berries. It is a pity that croissants with cherries are eaten even faster than they are cooked.
Enjoy your meal!
- Instead of cherries, you can use any other fresh berries, and if they are not sweet enough, add a little sugar to them.
- You can also put a piece of dark chocolate in the filling along with cherries, as they combine well with each other. But in this case, wrap the edges as tight as possible.
- Also, instead of icing sugar icing, you can cover the croissants with chocolate, melted in a water bath with the addition of butter.
