Ingredients

  • 2 large croissants, preferably a day old
  • Confectioner's sugar, for dusting
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • For the filling:
  • 4 ounces almond paste (not marzipan)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • a pinch of salt
  • For the syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract

Instructions

1

These are truly decadent. At the same time they're incredibly simple to make. Serve them at a brunch and your guests will think that you picked these up at a fancy French bakery.

2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3

Begin making the syrup by combining the sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for a few minutes until the sugar completely dissolves and remove from heat. Add the vanilla and almond extracts. Stir and allow to cool.

4

Make the filling by combining the almond paste, salt, sugar and butter and beat in a table top mixer or with a hand mixer for a few minutes until creamy. Add the egg and beat the mixture until creamy and fluffy.

5

Slice the croissants in half horizontally.

6

Dip each croissant half in the syrup quickly. Do not allow it to soak. You may also brush each croissant with the syrup (front and back).

7

Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

8

Put 2 tablespoons of the filling on the bottom portion of each croissant and spread it.

9

Cover with the top halves and spread one tablespoon of filling over them. Sprinkle some sliced almonds over the filling.

10

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until they're beautiful and golden.

11

Dust confectioner's sugar on top and serve!

Enjoy 🙂
