Gently mix the butter into the flour mixture until it is the size of peas.
Pour the yeast mixture into the flour mixture and gently stir until a dough is formed. Don’tstir too hard. Shape the dough into a square and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for one hour.
Dust your work surface and a rolling pin with flour. Roll the dough into a rectangle. Fold the shorter sides into the middle. Fold the top and bottom like a pouch.
Flip the dough such that the seams are underneath. Repeat the rolling and folding 4-5 times. Wrap the dough and refrigerate overnight.
On a lightly floured surface, roll a out dough into a rectangle about 10 inches by 16 inches. Cut the dough into 10 triangles with a pizza cutter. Shape into croissants. Keep on a parchment paper and let the croissant rise for 3-4 hours.

Bake the croissants for 7 minutes. Reduce temperature to 375 F and bake for 14 more minutes until golden brown
