French croissants are the perfect for breakfast or even anytime with tea or coffee. I love the flavor of butter and softness. You can add little cheese or paneer stuffing for stuffed croissants. I choose this eggless croissants recipe for French cuisine theme under Blogging Marathon#55.

Drizzle some oil over the dough and grease the bowl. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and keep aside to double in size for 60 minutes atleast.
Take the dough and knead for two three minutes more. Roll the dough 1/8 inch thick. Spread the butter over the dough and sprinkle little flour and fold it like puff pastry.
