    I've been watching Season One of The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. It doesn't seem to actually be season 1, because they talk as if the series has been going on forever. It has Louis and Martha, etc. Anyway, they use laminated dough a ton in 3 hourish challenges, and I thought maybe even though it showed them making laminated dough, that TV magic had them looking like it was just three hours. But, then in the final, someone said now that they can make croissants in 3 hours, they'll make them at Christmas. I know of a quick laminated dough method using grated frozen butter mixed into the dough, but it's not real laminated dough, and they had butter in between the layers as you should during turns, so HOW is this possible!?

    Nevermind, I answered my own question. If anyone is looking for it, Nancy posts her recipe for raspberry almond croissants on the site: http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/raspberry-almond-croissants/

    Essentially its rolled out butter, popped in the freezer, then the dough uses a quick microwave proofing followed by a quick chill, then the butter foldover, and 15 minute freezes in between each turn followed by a refrigerated rest.
