So awhile ago I tried my hand at Brioche dough....and decided it was not my friend. I am not sure if I did something wrong, maybe didn't let it rise enough, maybe didn't punch it down enough before letting it rest in the fridge over night....who knows?! But what I did with the dough the next day was all worth it. I followed Dorie's recipe for Brioche Snails, with a few twists, and they were YUMMY! Instead of rum soaked raisins I used mini chocolate chips, and I added some orange extract to the pastry cream. How can you go wrong with buttery dough, orange pastry cream and mini chocolate chips? You can't!
Here is how they turned out....probably not as high as they should have risen, but they were some tasty!
I will attempt Brioche again. Some time when I am feeling brave and have the time to make sure I do it right!
