ALMOND CROISSANTS

Sweet, buttery and flaky Almond Croissants made with store-bought croissants, almond syrup, and almond cream filling. A delicious bakery-like treat made at home. Ready in under an hour with an option to make-ahead.



INGREDIENTS

  • 6 medium sized croissants see note
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • powdered sugar for dusting, optional

ALMOND SYRUP:

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract

ALMOND FILLING/TOPPING:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter softened to room temp
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup almond meal or almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg

INSTRUCTIONS
PREPARE THE CROISSANTS:

  1. Split the croissants in half and lay them out on a baking sheet. Cover loosely with a paper towel and allow them dry out overnight. Alternately, you can use croissants that are already a day or two old and already slightly dry.


ALMOND SYRUP:

  1. In a small saucepan bring the water to a boil. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the almond extract. Cool slightly (or refrigerate for up to 24 hours).
