Filled Croissants

Ingredients

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. Pinch edges together to seal. Place 4 inches apart, seam sides down, on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining 3 portions.
  3. Cover and let rise until nearly double (about 1 hour). Brush again with egg mixture. Bake in a 375 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from baking sheets. Cool on wire racks. Makes 16 croissants.
