100% White Whole Wheat Loaves - Pastries from Croissant recipe
Stuck indoors with a head cold and raining all day..What would you do? Surfed on my PC and landed at Steve's Bread Cetera blog. http://www.BreadCetera.com I thought the 100% White Whole Wheat looked delicious and then I saw his lovely Croissants...my husband and I love pastries and the neighbors get a sample too, after seeing the wonderful posts on Shiao Pings blog with meat pies in puff pastry and TaxFarmer's croissants, my sweet tooth took over...last night I made the poolish for both.
Just out of the oven and cooling. Crumb shot tomorrow. I hope it looks half as nice as Steve's.
ADDED: The bread is made with King Arthur's White Whole Wheat Flour using Steve's recipe posted on BreadCetera.
The Pastries are not made with white whole wheat flour. I used the recipes posted on BreadCetera for Croissants for the pastries.
Perfect for sandwiches. I can detect the nice honey and butter just right in the mellow wheat.
I used the Moreno Cherries from Trader Joe's..I think they are the next best thing to the canned Oregon brand sour cherries
I thickened them in their own juice, almond extract with a little corn starch.
Cherry-Cream Cheese Danish -
I added fresh egg yolk, fresh lemon juice, vanilla and bakers sugar in the cream cheese.
