Almond Croissants – Store-bought butter croissants are transformed into rich, flavorful almond croissants with the addition of almond syrup and almond cream.
Happy Monday, everyone! Man, this weekend went by fast. But they always do, right? Well, if you’re struggling this morning like I am, I have the perfect treat to get you moving and grooving.
A little while ago, I shared my recipe for classic butter croissants. They are definitely a labor of love but it’s a recipe that fun to do and worth all the effort. They’ve never left my husband’s top 5 list, despite all the incredible things I’ve made since!
All of this is to lead us into today’s recipe – almond croissants. Almond croissants are, by-far, my favorite pastry. I love the rich almond filling and the crunch you get from the sliced almonds on top. Yummm. But I have yet to make my own at home because they seemed much more complicated than you’re classic version.
Au contraire! They are actually much easier than the classic croissants. But why is that? We’ll get into that below. But first – let’s gawk at the finished product!
Say hello to my Almond Croissants!
