After 8 blissful hours of sleep I jumped out of bed because I had a special treat waiting for me to pop it into the oven.
And since I am horrible at waiting and I imagine you are too - here it what I was looking forward to:

Well, you cant exactly throw them in straight from the freezer. First you need to pull one out the night before.
Put it in a nice warm place overnight - I put mine on a baking tray in the oven. Please note: the oven was turned off.
The croissant will rise overnight. I woke up and it was all puffed up and pretty. I should have taken a picture of that but I was in a bit of a rush to get it in the oven :-)
Then in it goes into a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or until it turns a golden brown.
