Croissants with white poppy seeds

Croissants with white poppy seeds
Croissants with white poppy seeds are a traditional baking made on the occasion of St. Marcin on November 11th. Croissants, a delicate half-French pastry with white poppy seeds, balls and nuts. White poppy is less popular than blue poppy. It is more delicate in taste and it is certainly harder to buy it. The recipe is not the simplest one, it must be admitted that it takes more time to cook it than standard stuffed croissants. Despite this, the Marienne croissants are worth the effort and time spent. I think that this recipe will surprise your guests with the original, nutty, delicate flavor of these wonderful croissants, not only in November.
