How to Make Mini Apple Croissant

  • To make apple puree: Peel, core and chop 1 apple.
  • Add the apple along with 1/2 tbsp of honey, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder and 1 tbsp of water in a pan.
  • Heat it on medium to slow heat.
  • When the apple gets completely soft, switch off the stove.
  • Let it cool down and puree it without adding any water.
  • Make the dough: Sift the flour in a large bowl, add salt and yeast and mix it well.
  • Make an indent at the centre, add egg, honey, apple puree, melted butter and the milk little by little to make a smooth and elastic dough.
  • Knead the dough with an electric mixer fitted with dough hook attachment or knead well using your hands.
  • Place the dough in a clean and oiled bowl, cover with a cling film and allow it to swell for an hour.
  • Make the croissant: Once the dough swells, knock out the air.
  • Divide the dough into two equal halves.
  • Roll out each half into a circle of 12 cm diameter.
  • Cut the circle into 12 equal triangles as shown in the picture.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  • Take 1 triangle and start rolling from the wider end to form croissant shape.
  • Repeat it with the remaining dough.
  • Place all the croissants in a baking sheet, spaced well apart.
  • Cover loosely with a cling film and allow it to rise in a warm place for another 30 minutes until it gets well puffed up.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  • Brush the croissants with the egg glaze and bake it in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until it looks golden brown on top.
  • Take it out from the oven, leave it to cool in a wire rack.
  • Serve warm with butter and jam for breakfast or tea.
