The filling versions can be different, depending on your taste and choice. Cheese alone is quite enough and a great choice.

As croissants can also be made sweet, it is up to you to choose the filling you like. It is important that it is not uncommon for it not to fall out of the croissant during baking.

Chocolate cream is always a good idea, thick vanilla pudding is even better, cooked apple puree with cinnamon is a great choice, as well as various jams of your choice.

Make sure that the dough noodles you develop are the same size.

When you have stacked all seven noodles on top of each other, carefully roll out the dough into as large a circle as possible. Then, fold the edges of the dough towards the middle, so that you get a square shape, turn the dough, and again roll it out well with a rolling pin in a circular shape.

When the dough is well developed so that it is half a centimeter thick, cut it into 24 equal parts.

On each cut triangle of dough put the filling on the widest part of the triangle. Bend the croissants from the widest to the narrowest part, so that you get fine muffins / croissants.

Arrange the bent croissants in a tray and leave them to stand for an hour in a warm place. Then coat them with a fork by hand with beaten egg whites.

If you are making sweet croissants, add a teaspoon of sugar to the beaten egg whites.

If you make salty croissants, you can sprinkle the croissants with sesame, cumin or coarse salt over the egg white coating.
