Sourdough Pain Au Chocolat and Kouign Amann

Baked Sourdough Pain Au Chocolat and Kouign Amann. I hadn’t made these I a bit and my wife really likes the Pain Au Chocolat. They all start out with same laminated dough as my Sourdough Croissants. Different shape and inclusion of the chocolate for the Pain Au Chocolat and sugar for the Kouign Amann. IContinue reading “Sourdough Pain Au Chocolat and Kouign Amann”

Savory Sourdough Danishes

Had a desire to make savory Danishes again. Think it was prompted by seeing my Rosemary in my garden take off growing again.

As my danishes were proving this morning I caramelized the shallotsContinue reading “Savory Peach Brie Sourdough Danishes with Peppered Rosemary Honey”

Savory Sourdough Pastries

Trying savory sourdough pastries. I’d never made some before so I thought I’d give it a go! I used my standard laminated dough recipe and method up to the point of cutting/shaping. I cut eight rectangles, cut holes out of four and then stacked. In hindsight I could have let rise a bit more (seeContinue reading “Savory Sourdough Pastries”

Sourdough Cherry-Cream Cheese Danishes

Oh these are sooooo sinful!! Lately I’ve been thinking about what other pastries I can make with my laminated dough. I decided I’d try to make danishes. The only difference in the dough is that I laminated with two letter folds as opposed to a book fold and a letter fold (9 layers of butterContinue reading “Sourdough Cherry-Cream Cheese Danishes”
