A simple three-ingredient croissant recipe

To make these croissants, you will need just three essential items: flour, butter, and cottage cheese. The 1:1:1 method, which entails using equal parts of each ingredient, makes kneading the dough easy and swift.

Ingredients:

  • 2.64 pounds of wheat flour,
  • 2.64 pounds of cottage cheese,
  • 2.64 pounds of cold butter,
  • Jam, marmalade, or chocolate cream for filling,
  • Powdered sugar for topping.

Preparation:

  1. Put the flour in a bowl, add the butter and cottage cheese. Mix these ingredients well and knead them by hand until you get a smooth dough.
  2. Split the dough into two equal parts and shape them into balls. Wrap them in cling film and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  3. After taking it out, dust your surface with flour and roll one of the dough balls into a thin layer.
  4. Cut the layer into triangle shapes and put a teaspoon of jam or your preferred marmalade or chocolate cream on each.
  5. Roll up the triangles into the classic croissant shape from the wide end.
  6. Place the croissants onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  7. Bake in an oven preheated to 356 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes until the croissants are nicely browned.
  8. Once they're done, dust the warm croissants with powdered sugar.

With the 1:1:1 method, you can enjoy delicious baked goods without unnecessary effort. It's a delightful way to add charm to your afternoon coffees and make croissants a regular indulgence on your menu.
