Can you freeze croissants? The answer is yes – but there are some things to keep in mind. Croissants are made with a lot of butter, and that butter can start to go rancid if frozen. So if you’re going to freeze them, make sure to do it within a couple of days of buying them. And when you thaw them out, they may not be as fluffy and light as fresh croissants – the butter will have melted and changed the texture. But they’ll still taste good! Freezing croissants usually lasts for 2-3 months.

However, I do not recommend this method because it tends to make the Croissants dry and tough.
