Description

Filled with a creamy almond filling and sprinkled with sliced almonds and powdered sugar, these almond croissants make an elegant addition to any breakfast or brunch. Made with day-old croissants, the almond cream--a mixture of ground almonds, egg, butter, and sugarr--is spread into the middle of the croissants as well as on the top for good measure. Baked until the sliced almonds are toasted, these croissants are best served warm.
