  • To get the maximum enjoyment from your Croissants; make them the night before, wrap tightly in foil or place in a resealable plastic bag and leave at room temp. Make up some fresh fruit cups and stash in the fridge. Wake up in the morning, make a pot of the best coffee you can and put it in a hot thermos See Photo. Warm up the Croissants and wrap in a towel to keep warm. Grab the fruit cups. Find the best view you can, break out your goodies and enjoy See Photo. "Memories are life held together with tape." -J.
