French croissants: Stage 6
There are 2 ways to shape the croissants:
1) "Straight", where the rolled-up croissants are not curved. This is the simpler method.
2) "Curved", where the finished croissants are crescent-shaped, and the dough is cut to achieve this curve. This is a trickier method.
If you wish to make curved croissants, make a 1 inch (2 cm) cut in the middle of the base edge of each triangle.
