recipe Quick-Method Croissant Dough (see Recipe Center)
1
recipe Blueberry Filling, Cheese Filling, Almond Filling, or Dilled Ham Filling (see recipes below)
1
egg
1
tablespoon water

Directions

  1. Prepare and chill Quick-Method Croissant Dough as directed. Prepared desired filling. Cut dough crosswise into 4 portions. Wrap and return 3 portions to refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. On a lightly floured surface roll 1 portion of dough into a 16x8-inch rectangle. Cut rectangle into 8x4-inch rectangles. Spoon filling onto center of each smaller rectangle. In a small mixing bowl beat egg and water using a fork. Brush edges of dough with egg mixture. Fold short sides of the rectangles over the filling to overlap in center, forming bundles.
