If you have been following my blog, you definitely know that I am scared of baking! I think NASA would give me a job sooner than a bakery. BUT, at least I’m trying to get better at it; practice makes perfect, right?
Today’s baking challenge is about “Kifli”, or croissants. In my neck of the woods if you can make these kifli, then you have almost earned the title of “Homemaker” – you have to know how to make a “Zelnik” (Macedonian pastry made of two thin crusts filled with greens) before you can be a full-blown Homemaker.
Due to the Orthodox Christmas Fast (strictly Vegan), I made these croissants with just flour, yeast, oil, and vinegar. They can also be made with milk and eggs and stuffed with feta cheese or nutella, but we’ll do that recipe another time. Anyways, think about all the calories that I have saved you from by not using the milk and eggs. And I probably saved myself from a baking disaster by using fewer ingredients. 🙂
I have to warn you; before you decide to make these, make sure you have about 3 – 4 hours to dedicate to them.
