Make Puff Pastry in a Waffle Iron for a Croissant-Like Treat
Yes, you should try all the dishes in the waffle iron . But this one is the simplest: just pour the finished puff pastry into the waffle iron and see what happens.
Food & Wine calls the result “croissant”: croissant + waffle. The dough does get crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside, beating harder than you might expect. You can treat it like a waffle by topping it with maple syrup or making your own dough and stacking chocolate chips.
Anyway, go ahead and buy a waffle iron already.
