hi! newb here, looking to maybe getting help on baking croissants, heres the scoop. WE run a mobil kitchen that is permantly located at a local factory( guess that means its not really mobil now?) I always bought sams club croissants.....oh oh.....anyways i decided to try the case lots and bake my own.. i got a small tble top convection oven, holds 1/4 sheet pans 110 volt, problem is when baking the tops all seem to want to "crisp up? i want them nice and soft, if i try to take them out sooner of course there not done . i have tried "spritzing" with a little water before baking but no help.. any and all ideas are GREATFULLY  appreciated. thanks. buck

I am by no means a professional baker.... but have you tried reducing the temperature of the oven after they have baked part way?
Or another thought.
When I bake a pie and the top begins to brown faster than it should I place a bit of aluminum foil over the part that is starting to get dark.  Could you lay a sheet of aluminum over the top of the croissants when they get to the level of color and texture that you want.  Don't wrap it tightly as the at would trap moisture but just lay the foil or even parchment on top of them.

Hi Buck, welcome to VBB.  Instead of spritzing with water you might want to try butter spray.  That's how I kept mine soft when baking.  Might be worth a try on a small batch to see if it works with your oven.

We have a couple of ladies here who used to work for bakeries, they might have some suggestions too. 

Good luck and please let us know how it turns out.

I worked in a deli and baked croissants but never in a convection oven.I always used a water and beaten egg wash brushed on with a pastry brush before proofing and again before baking and they always came out fluffy and light.Hope this helps.
