Paris Theme Ideas

For your Paris dinner add a checkered tablecloth, a basket of fresh French bread or baguettes and a cheese platter to your dinner table.

Have guests wear berets and put on a fashion show. Paris is known for fashion so having each guest dress up and put on a show is fitting for a Paris theme party.

Croissants

5 cups flour
1 1/2 cups butter, cold
1 cup water warm (105° to 115°)
1 package yeast active dry or 1 tablespoon yeast
3/4 cup half and half
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon water

Cut cold butter into smaller chunks or slices. In a mixing bowl blend 4 cups of flour with 1 cup cold butter. Mixture will be crumbly. Set aside. In a separate bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Add a sprinkle of sugar to the yeast mixture. When yeast is bubbly and foaming pour into empty mixing bowl. Add 1 cup flour, half and half, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 egg, salt and melted butter. Blend together then add yeast mixture and crumbly butter mixture. Blend together until just moistened. Chill for several hours in the fridge.

Take dough out of fridge after chilling and knead on a floured surface. Divide dough into 4 smaller balls. Keep the dough you aren't working with in the fridge to chill. Roll one ball into a large circle. Cut into triangles or wedge shapes. Roll triangle up starting at the wide end and rolling up toward the pointed end. Bend ends to look like a croissant shape. Place on a ungreased cookie sheet and finish rolling remaining dough. Cover with plastic wrap or a light towel and let rise 1-2 hours.

In a small glass beat together one egg and 1 tablespoon water. Before baking brush each croissant with egg mixture. Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.


**To add fillings to croissants place a tablespoon of filling on triangle and roll up. Fillings could be a fruit filling, chocolate, chicken mixture or a cream filling.
