First of all. I don’t speak French although I do live in Canada and I studied the language all through grade school. I just felt that trying to find Pitou was exhausting so I stared out the window and ultimately got into trouble for not listening in class. (This hasn’t changed by the way….I still don’t pay attention…right Steve?)Secondly, I’m not a pastry chef so what do I know about croissants and puff pastry? Nothing. With the exception that I like when someone else makes the dough and bakes something nice for me. Don’t get confused by the name of this french pastry. It may say PAIN (which is bread) – but it is pronounced Pa_n with the N being nasal and sort of silent. Oh here …..listen for yourself → “how to pronounce Pain in French”Lastly, I’m not gonna lie but I really was stumped for something to make today. I did kinda know that I had some ingredients in the house to use up but honestly I was lost.In comes Sweet Paul’s to the rescue. I saw these cute little Pain Au Chocolat pinwheels on there and they looked both cute and delish. AND GUESS WHAT? I had all the ingredients to make them!
Mind you, there are technically only three. I added some extra’s just to spruce them up a bit.
Puff Pastry Dough
Really? Yes, really.
How’s that for easy? My kind of recipe. ONE, TWO,THREE – BAKE IT and HAVE IT ALL FOR ME.
