Trader Joe's frozen croissants

To anyone who has made these before. I've only made them in the winter. You let them sit overnight for 7-9 hours on the counter to rise. However, the weather is much warmer now and I don't have AC so I'm wondering if anyone has made these in warm weather? I'm thinking they are going to rise a lot faster. Maybe in 3-4 hours? I don't think setting them out overnight is a good idea.

  1. I have made them all year and I live in OC,CA. The only difference, sometimes they are smaller than other times. The warmer the temp, the bigger they get which is fine with me.

      Thanks, I'll give it a try the normal way and see what happens!

        I've made them all year round, as well, in OC and in the Bay Area. Up here, they actually get a bit dried out in the winter overnight. Just fine in the summer, but our nights are always cool....
