Childhood memories

When I was little, Saturday mornings meant  "special" cereals such as 'Golden Nuggets' or 'Frosties', followed by warm croissants spread with sweet honey.

 Mum used to buy croissants in a can and we would roll them up into thick crescents before baking them in the oven, where they would puff up and become golden and crispy. -Yes, I did say croissants in a can. Keep reading.

We recently rediscovered these croissants and so I thought I'd share them with you. They're easy enough to make (you don't really need me telling you about them), but I wanted to talk about the memories of childhood and they joys of making things together as a family. I can recollect Saturday mornings where my sister and I would sit at the table - distracted from the tv for once - rolling the triangular pieces of dough into curved shapes.

There are 6 croissants in a pack. Once you've ripped the packaging off you're left with a long roll of six triangles, comme ça.

Separate the triangles out and begin to roll them up from the thick end to the thin.

Bend them round in a crescent shape and space out on a baking tray.

Bake in the oven for ten minutes and wait for the magic to occur!

They're not as flaky as all-butter croissants, but for a tin they taste remarkably good. They're small and light, too, so no need to feel guilty if you fancy a second one!

Find the canned croissants here. You should be able to buy them in bigger supermarkets. Give them a go with your family or friends and experiment with adding bits of chocolate for a little treat.

This is not a sponsored post, I just like croissants!
