Can I make croissants with puff pastry dough?

scanditrash | Mar 26, 2009 02:33 PM

From what I can gather from google, the main difference between the two doughs is that croissant dough has sugar and yeast, which strikes me as quite a big deal, but I feel like puff pastry can be quite flaky and works well with savory and sweet fillings so I'm not entirely sure it is a totally absurd idea. Any thoughts?
I'd like to make home made croissants for brunch without the hassle of making the dough myself so the thought of using store bought puff pastry dough is quite appealing.
