    I have this almost perfect puff pastry recipe.

    * 1 1/2 cups flour
    * 1 cup butter
    * 1 pinch of salt
    * 1/2 cup water

    Very basic. I just learned that in order to make croissants and danish pastry, yeast is involved. I searched the net for hours and I didnt find a proper croissant dough recipe that will yield not so many croissants. 

    Can I just add yeast to my current puff pastry recipe? How much? How about the proofing? Should it all be the same as puff pastry? you know, the 6-12 hours in the ref.

    Thanks in advance!
