"Now," he says with a smooth evil voice "I will put your pitiful life into your own hands to make this interesting." (He is a villain obsessed with the interesting...he strives always to be an imaginative antagonist, if nothing else) "If you can answer this one question correctly I will let you live. But God knows you never could...some say it is an impossible riddle that cannot be solved..." This is my cue to despair and his cue to chuckle terribly. His grip on my poor neck tightens and I squirm! My life is surely over...my enemy gives a wry slimy smile. "If you had to host the biggest and fanciest brunch known to all mankind for the most esteemed people of the world," a dramatic pause.... "what would you serve?"
GASP! The impossible question. I will die a horrible death miserably at the bottom of this rocky cannon! Andthe blackgaurd knows it; he laughs, preparing to hurl me to my end. I throw out the only answer that could even remotely be correct:
And huzzah! The brute casts me aside and leaves with a swirl of his cloak and an evil rattle in his throat. The impossible riddle has been solved, the world is saved, and all is well. The good citizens will brunch another day!
Okay, joking aside...these filled croissants really are the perfect brunch/tea party/appetizer item you could ever serve. Better yet, it doesn't take 12 hours like the traditional ones do. Really, I only took up one sunny afternoon making these flaky, buttery, rolls of awesome.
You could make croissants without filling and they would be just as good. But when something can be filled, I fill it. I guess you could say that is a weakness of mine...every good heroine must have a weakness that isn't truly a weakness.
Thus: two kinds of croissants here...mushroom bacon ones and nutella ones. Now, I'm not a die hard nutella fan. I like the stuff with fruit and so we had a jar of it in the pantry, but I wouldn't go all hipster on you dear people and swear myself into the convent of the great nutella-cult or anything. BUT! On these croissants...I would swear something, because it's the tastiest thing this side of doughnuts.
And so...the recipe for the answer to the world's impossible riddle:
