1. Put the yeast in a measuring cup with 1 tablespoon of flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a about half a cup of warm water.

2. Cover with plastic wrap or a recycled plastic bag, and let stand for about 10 min (you will know it’s ready when it begins to overflow).

3. Place the flour on the counter, make a space in the middle and dump the yeast mixture, margarine (melted), a pinch of salt, the 1/2 cup of sugar, and warm water.

4. Knead until you get a uniform dough and let it rest for an hour or two in a bowl covered with a plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place.

5. After rising, put a small amount of flour on a flat surface (table, counter), stretch with a rolling pin, and cut triangles, roll up from the most wide to form the beautiful croissants.

6. Grease a baking sheet and arrange croissants evenly.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

8. Finally, make syrup with sugar, water and a tablespoon of vanilla essence and brush the croissants after removing them from the oven.
