Croissants------My First Bread

Fortunately i found this website two weeks ago and i saw so many beautiful bread you guys made. i realy hope i can get them from my oven . I think that yeasterday I got a good start in bread baking.I like the croissants so i decided the crossant will be my first bread and i gave it a shot but  I never thought that my first bread will look like this golden brown, good smell and the taste also is good to me and my friends. Here, i wanna thank to Gothicgirl who posted her croissants' recipe with so many details which i used for my first bread, thank you so much!!!

I am so happy and excited :) and i wanna share with you.

I love the golden color, very pretty! The center looks so cool in the picture where you are holding it. Croissants are great because they are a work of art.

Thank you Nick and Al. Actually I already made my "next" which is kind of easy, fast and funy way to made this afternoon. Beacuse today i am still excited about my "first", i can not stop myself so i have to spend some energy then i can calm down. The best way of course is baking my next bread. Haa haa! I am posting it right now.

That is mighty impressive for your first bread.  Croissants are not a project for beginners.  You may want to consider a career in this!
