If you look in the clearance sections of major grocery stores, you'll find they will place baked goods there for less than half price at the end of the day. Mine sells half a dozen large croissants for $2 after 5pm. They're great when toasted, but my secret trick is to roll them out, cut them into discs, and turn them into a flaky pastry dessert. This tower of delight tastes like the most elegant Palmier cookies layered with fresh fluffy whipped cream. You just would not guess these are old croissants. This is a crowd-pleasure, no doubt!
You will need a serrated knife, a rolling pin, and round pastry cutters to make this. If you're making your own whipped cream, have a beater handy. You could also use ready-made whipped cream.
