Teatime: French Croissants πŸŒπŸ“

Now that Easter is coming, i was daydreaming about Spanish typical at this time of the year, Torrijas! Mouthwatering πŸ˜‹… I guess i have to wait a bit more 😦 But i keep an ace up in my sleeve : FRENCH CROISSANTS πŸŽ‰ they are halfway between French toasts and torrijas. I love it, and it’s simple than Spanish dessert, but don’t worry i will made them for Easter πŸ˜‰


Time: 45 minΒ Β Β  Portions: 2
