Delicious Croissants

We got some frozen croissants from Williams Sonoma as a gift. I can't begin to tell you how fantastic they were. I didn't expect it...but they seriously tasted like fresh croissants that I'd enjoyed so much in Paris. They are not cheap but an excellent splurge. So flaky and light.

        Frozen, ships overnight.

        Sounds strange. But $40 + taxes + $8.50 shipping for 24, that's more than $2 per, you're better off getting to delanghe or tartine in the morning.

          Perhaps you would save a few bucks ordering them direct?

          1. re: cedichou

            Actually, that's $40 for fifteen (24 mini's). With shipping, these things cost more than $3 apiece. Of course, if they're nirvana, that's okay. I imagine a croissant at a good bakery in Paris would set you back a like amount these days.

        2. KA Bakers Catalogue also sells ccroissants by mail. Though quite dear, I've often been tempted...

          1. Do they sell these in every state? I didn't thin W-S did frozen food.

            TT

              You can only buy them out of the catalogue, not (at least that I've seen) out of the freezer case at your local W-S.

            2. I had a wonderful croissant at a small cafe. They confessed that they buy them frozen from Gourmet & More. Since I paid about a dollar or so for it, the cost must be less than that.
