Almond Croissants

Makes 8

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 20 mins

8 Large Croissants, cut in half horizontally
1 cup of Ground Almonds
1/2 cup of Granulated Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Bean Paste or Vanilla Extract
Zest of 1/2 of a Lemon
8 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature
1 Tbsp of All Purpose Flour
Sliced Almonds
1/4 tsp Almond Extract
Confectioners Sugar
Pinch of Salt


1) To make the filling: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, add the egg, vanilla and lemon zest and using a handheld electric whisk, whisk for a few minutes or until the mixture becomes thick and takes on a consistency similar to a mousse.

2) Add the ground almonds and flour and mix until you have a creamy mixture.

3) Spread a bit of the filling on the bottom cut side of the croissant, put the top on, spread a little more on top, sprinkle with some almonds and place on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Continue with the remaining croissants, then bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

4) Sprinkle over some confectioners sugar and dig in!
