Croiffles (Croissant Waffles) Recipe

Ingredients:

For the Croissant Dough:

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110°F / 45°C)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup cold milk
  • 1 large egg

For the Waffles:

  • Non-stick cooking spray or additional melted butter (for the waffle iron)

Instructions:

Prepare the Croissant Dough:

  1. Activate the Yeast:
    • In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and a pinch of sugar in the warm water. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, remaining sugar, and salt.
  3. Cut in the Butter:
    • Add the cold butter cubes to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, whisk together the cold milk and egg. Add the frothy yeast mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Form the Dough:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until the dough comes together. It will be sticky.
  6. Chill the Dough:
    • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it a few times to bring it together into a ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  7. Roll and Fold (Laminate) the Dough:
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick.
    • Fold the dough into thirds like a letter. Turn it 90 degrees, roll it out again, and fold into thirds.
    • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Repeat the rolling and folding process two more times, chilling the dough for 30 minutes in between each fold.
  8. Final Roll:
    • After the final chill, roll the dough out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.

Make the Croiffles:

  1. Preheat the Waffle Iron:
    • Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
  2. Cut and Cook:
    • Cut the croissant dough into squares or triangles that will fit into your waffle iron.
    • Place a piece of dough in the preheated waffle iron and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 3-5 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
  3. Serve:
    • Remove the croiffle from the waffle iron and let it cool slightly on a wire rack.
    • Repeat with the remaining dough.

Optional Toppings:

  • Powdered sugar
  • Fresh berries
  • Maple syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Nutella
  • Honey
  • Jam

Enjoy your delicious and unique Croiffles!
