Puff Pastry Pear Croissants

I made these Pear Croissants for our New Year’s Day celebration, and it was a hit! It was my first time making (and using) puff pastry, and it wasn’t too hard at all. I chilled my dough overnight and in the morning it came out very hard. So when you chill it, make sure you give it time to come to room temperature so it can be easily rolled out.

** You can buy puff pastry from your local grocery or make your own. I made mine using this puff pastry recipe. Making it adds about 3 hrs to the process. If you decide to make your own be sure to allow time for the dough to come to room temperature, or it will be hard to roll out.
