HenryNisental Registered. If you live in the good old USA you can buy it in any supermarket. It comes in a tube or roll, that you can separate in triangles very easily, and it is good for several pastries. Stevied Registered. HenryNisental said:. The Pillsbury stuff is definitely not the same. We bring a dozen or so freshly baked medialunas every time we come to the U. You can keep them in the fridge for 5 days or so or freeze them for longer. Pop them in the oven to warm them up in the morning.
Of course they aren't perfect, but better than the versions I've bought locally and I'm too lazy to make them. I think it would be a real challenge to keep the dough even semi-frozen on that long flight. Probably a strange question for some, but wondering if anyone knows if there is any place you could buy medialuna dough?
My wife is in BA for a week, and I thought she might be able to bring some frozen dough back with her - not sure it will stay frozen for the flight, but I think its typically quite cold in the cargo hold where the checked bags are stored.
Yes, I suppose I could make it here - but it wouldn't be quite the same need the healthy lard that I'm sure they use there. BaltRochGirl Registered. We freeze baked medialuna's regularly when we buy a couple dozen of our favorite. They reheat well, I'd go with that option. This thread gave me a chuckle. We just moved our US home from Houston to Northern California, and I recently went off to buy some lard for empanada dough. Five supermarkets later, and nothing. At the fifth one, I asked an employee if they sold it, and she very politely walked me over to the Crisco I educated her.
In TX, lard is available in any supermarket, right next to the butter - I guess Californians are afraid of the real deal. Thank god there's a local Latino market - their lard is rendered fresh on-site. Medialuna dough is almost exactly like croissant dough but with more sugar. If you attempt to bring the dough back to the States frozen, and it begins to thaw, which it most likely will, the yeast will activate and it will quickly spoil. Pillsbury crescent rolls are not even close to either medialunas or croissants.
One thing to consider is looking for pre-made croissant dough in the U. You must log in or register to reply here.
