Making croissants may be difficult – but it isn’t impossible. The world’s top pastry chefs have often said that making croissants is all about patience and persistence. If you failed the first few times, don’t give up! Just keep trying over and over again until you get there.
It’s no surprise that croissants are hard to make – a classic French croissant has 55 layers, which are made with 27 layers of butter! Its unique shape is achieved with a French fold followed by 3 letter folds. If you’ve tried making your own croissant before, you’ll understand how tricky it could be to achieve the perfect consistency and texture.

But here’s the secret to making the most amazing, fluffy, light and heavenly croissant: great quality, premium butter. The good news is, you don’t need to fly to Paris to get the perfect European croissant butter – you can get what you need to make delicious, melt-in-your-mouth croissants with butter from Puri Pangan Utama, Bali’s best grocery supplier online.
The trick is to choose butter that comes with the highest amount of butterfat content which makes it perfect for laminating. The butter that you pick will also affect your croissant’s shape, texture, moisture levels and taste. Choose the right butter, combined with the right techniques and other ingredients, and you’ll get a delicious, flaky and flavourful crescent-shaped pastry – all things that a good croissant should be.
Here at Puri Pangan Utama, there are numerous, really great, best butter to choose from. There are blocks of salted and unsalted butter but did you know that the best bakers always turn to butter sheets to make the perfect croissant? Our most popular butter sheets are Corman Concentrated Butter Sheet 99.8% and Corman Dairy Butter Sheet 82%.
Block and Sheet Butter
If you choose to use block butter, you’ll need to pound the butter down by hand using a rolling pin – a challenging and time-consuming feat. It will also cause inconsistencies when it comes to thickness and coverage. Use a butter sheet instead and there’ll be no cutting or pounding needed. The butter sheet also assures an even, creamy distribution, all the way to the edges of your dough. If you’re looking for block butter, a great choice would be Corman Patisy Block Butter.
