I wonder if any of you can help me, I'd like to make croissants for breakfast but we are not morning people so I was wondering if it was possible to make the croissants then leave them in the fridge overnight?
I have two recipes the proportions are slightly different but more importantly the rise times are different so:-
Recipe 1 goes Mix proof 1hr in warm, knock back chill 1hr, do folds and resting etc. then shape and rise 1hr in warm.
Recipe 2 says mix proof 1hr in warm, knock back chill for 4-8hrs, do folds resting etc. then shape and rise in cool (not fridge) 2hrs.
So I wondered if I use the second recipe could I switch the 2hr cool rise with the 8hr retarded rise and then bake straight from the fridge or is this going to just make a mockery of the whole thing.
Thanks in advance
