for not throwing stones.
the internet is hard. relationships are hard. the outside of a baguette is hard but the inside is supposed to be very soft and if it’s not you’re not cooking it right. try heating some stones in the oven and pouring boiling water over them right as you put the baguette in there. the water beads will seal themselves onto the surface of the uncooked dough and evaporate quickly making the crust thin but hard. only cook these for like 20 or 25 mins.
