So, I’ve never been much of a baker. Occasionally, I will do it, but I don’t have much experience with it. I prefer to cook because it’s way easier and requires less attention to detail. I don’t feel confident as a baker yet, but I’m still going to tell you how I achieved these crescents. Give me a few more months of steady baking and I will be able to reinvent some recipes the way that I do with savory foods!
Initially, I wanted to make croissants, but I changed my mind last minute after watching a Youtube tutorial. I think I’m going to wait until I purchase my stand mixer to make them. I want big, fluffy, and dark croissants and I think it’ll be much easier to achieve the texture that I want with a stand mixer instead of just using my hands the way that I did with these crescent rolls!
Maple Syrup is my sweetener of choice. Maple Syrup makes everything taste so much better. I love adding it to random pasta dishes (NOT tomato based, yuck!) and to my meats. If you’ve never mixed together Maple Syrup, Soy Sauce, Liquid Smoke, and Worcestershire to marinade your steak, I promise that you have not lived! The combination of maple syrup, vanilla, and GOOD quality butter will upgrade your bagels, french toasts, waffles, pancakes, and even cinnamon rolls! This mixture is perfect on any bread based dessert because it’s sweet and neutral at the same time. Please don’t use bad quality butter to make the maple vanilla butter mix. It is crucial.
