Preparation

Form a well with 190g of flour, put a little salt in the middle and knead, pouring in just enough water to obtain a dough which is neither too hard nor too soft. Form into a loaf-shape and set aside to cool. Mix the remaining flour with the softened butter, forming another dough. Roll out the first dough with a rolling pin, place the butter and flour dough in the centre and spread it out. Fold the corners of the square towards the centre to enclose the butter dough. Roll it into a rectangular strip, then fold it in on itself in four parts and let them rest, covered, in a cool place for 15 minutes. Redo this process 5 times every 15 minutes. Roll out the dough into quite a thin circle and divide it into 8 equal triangles. Roll each one up on itself starting from the shorter base and lightly curve them to give a typical croissant shape. Place the croissants on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment and bake at 180°C for about 20 minutes until they are golden. Let them cool and fill them with the cold cuts or cheese of your choice.

Tips
If you want to make the surface of the croissants shiny and golden, brush them with beaten egg and a drop of oil before baking.
Trivia
The name of this delicious snack comes from its shape.
