Yeah, no. Realistically, I made some decent dinner rolls, that in no way resembled croissants. My friends and family were in no way dazzled (although, my kind and wonderful parents politely ate a few). As for PC, no idea where he is. Probably still in the damn tree.
The basic process seems fairly straightforward. You make a dough, roll it out, fold it over, chill, repeat. I did all those things, but it still didn't work. I'm going to try again, using pastry flour instead of the white/wheat mix I used. And now I will leave you with some pictures.
If you want actual croissants, go to a bakery.
