With this recipe, I am stuffing the croissant with ham and cheese; however, you can add anything to eat. Let your culinary experience or your preferences decide. I have also done this recipe with grilled vegetables (i.e eggplant) and the mozzarella cheese for a vegetarian approach.

This recipe will make 6 dozen croissants.


4 cups Flour (All Purpose Flour)

1/4 tsp Salt

2 cups cold Butter

2 Eggs (separated yolk and whites)

1  1/3 cups Sour Cream


Mozzarella Cheese


Combine the flour and salt.

On the side, cut in butter until mixture is coarse crumbs. Do that on the food processor.

In a bowl, whisk yolks, and source cream.

Add crumb mixture to yolks and source cream.

Mix well.

Cover and refrigerate it.

Divide the dough into 6 pieces.

Roll each portion into a 10-inch circle

Cut 8 pieces out of the circle

On each piece, add a piece of ham and mozzarella cheese. You can actually use anything you may like in here.

Roll into croissant shapes.

Brush with egg whites.

Bake it for 18-20 minutes at 350F

Enjoy it

Buon Appetito!
