Location: My home in Pine Creek, which is on the very north side of Colorado Springs. Exact address will be provided when registration is complete.

Course Description

Learn everything you need to know about baking these ethereal French pastries at home, at high altitude!

This class is taught by Leah Johnson, owner / baker at Le Petit Croissant and author of the award-winning cookbook, “French Brunch At Home.” Leah’s flagship class teaches all about laminated dough, the right type of butter to use, adjustments required for success at high altitude, and much more.

This is a hands-on, small-group class with plenty of personal instruction. Everyone enjoys a personal baking station — there’s no doubling, tripling, or quadrupling of students at mixers. Snack on fresh croissants and jam from Le Petit Croissant during the class break, and browse a selection of jams available for purchase.  Take home the 8 gorgeous croissants you bake in class, plus dough that you can either freeze or bake into 16 fresh croissants the next morning.  Take home TWO DOZEN croissants in total, and enjoy croissants in class! (Retail value of croissants: $91.00)

Croissants will freeze beautifully to save for a holiday brunch! Instructions for freezing and defrosting will be included in the class.

IMPORTANT! The dough you take home requires 10 minutes of attention every hour for 3 hours following the class.  Additional minor attention is required the next morning.

Price: $110.00

Leah,  Your class was outstanding!  Thank you for being so generous with the sample croissants in class as well as the baked croissants and the croissant dough we got to take home. I learned a great deal in your class and absolutely love your French at Home recipe book. Attending your croissant class was not only fun it was educational, fun and inspiring!  Your croissants class was well worth the time/cost to attend. Thank you!

I just took the croissant class yesterday and I came home with yummy baked goods, dough for myself and a new skill. Leah teaches a complicated task in a fun and low-stress environment. I will go back for other classes she offers and suggest to anyone that is curious about technical baking to reach out to her. She was wonderful!

– 5-star review from B.C. on my Le Petit Croissant Facebook page

I absolutely LOVED the class.  It was so much fun and I learned so much.  I love your attention to detail and that you don’t sacrifice quality.  That is important to me.  I really would not change a thing.  I cannot wait for the next one.
