This muffin croissant hybrid is not only unconventional in its makeup, but it also incorporates a special blend of green tea. The Matcha Cruffins are a combination of croissant and muffin, meaning they are not only flaky and buttery, but can also be paired with a wide variety of tastes, including matcha, fruit jam, vanilla pastry cream or chocolate.
The muffin croissant is made using croissant dough and a butter layer made with cold, unsalted European-style butter. Created by food blogger Courtney of Fork to Belly, the Matcha Cruffins take three days to bake, so only the extremely dedicated should take on this recipe. Croissants are notoriously difficult to make, so expertise in the kitchen would come in especially handy.
