INSTRUCTIONS

PRÈPARÈ THÈ CROISSANTS:

Split thè croissants in half and lay thèm out on a baking shèèt. Covèr loosèly with a papèr towèl and allow thèm dry out ovèrnight. Altèrnatèly, you can usè croissants that arè alrèady a day or two old and alrèady slightly dry.

ALMOND SYRUP:

In a small saucèpan bring thè watèr to a boil. Add thè sugar and stir until dissolvèd. Rèmovè from thè hèat and add thè almond èxtract. Cool slightly (or rèfrigèratè for up to 24 hours).

ALMOND FILLING/TOPPING:

Using a hand mixèr or stand mixèr, bèat buttèr, sugar, almond mèal, and salt until smooth and combinèd. Add èxtract and ègg and bèat until crèamy. Usè immèdiatèly or covèr and rèfrigèratè for up to 24 hours.

ASSÈMBLY:

Prèhèat ovèn to 350°F. Gèt out a rimmèd baking shèèt (largè ènough to hold all 6 croissants) and sèt it asidè.

Brush thè outsidès, as wèll as thè insidès, of èach split croissant libèrally with thè almond syrup. Altèrnatèly, you can dip thè insidè and outsidè vèry brièfly in thè syrup, allowing thè èxcèss to drip off.

Scoop somè of thè almond filling and sprèad it onto thè insidè of èach croissant, placè thè top half back on, and sprèad morè almond filling onto thè top of thè croissant. Tip: Bèforè starting, I sprèad thè almond filling into an èvèn layèr in thè bowl that it’s in and I roughly “scorè” it èqually into sixths. This givès mè an idèa of how much filling I can usè on èach croissant (rèmèmbèr, èach portion will bè split bètwèèn thè insidè and top of thè croissant).

Add slicèd almonds to thè top of èach croissant. Thè crèamy almond topping will sèrvè as gluè. Placè thè croissants on a rimmèd baking shèèt and bakè for 12-14 minutès, until thè crèam on top has sèt and thè croissants arè light goldèn brown. Allow to cool just slightly, dust with powdèrèd sugar, if dèsirèd. Ènjoy warm.
