This is a perfect and easy Almond Croissant recipe that is a great way to start any morning. Filled with nutty almond flavor and dusted with powdered sugar makes these croissants unforgettable.


  • 8 Large Baked Croissants
  • ½ c. sugar
  • ½ c. water
  • 1 tbsp. Almond extract
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 c. sugar
  • ½ c. almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ tbsp. Flour
  • ⅛ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ c. sliced almonds
  • Garnish: Powdered sugar


  1. In a small saucepot, add the ½ cup of water and sugar and bring to a boil. Allow boiling for 5 minutes, just until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Add the tablespoon of almond extract and stir.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
  3. Sliced the croissants in half, brush the insides and the outside of the croissants with the simple syrup.
  4. In a separate large bowl, add the butter, sugar, almond flour, flour, and egg and blend with a standing mixer or handheld mixer. Mix until smooth. Add the salt and vanilla extract and mix once more. Spread about a tablespoon of the almond cream in the middle of the croissants.
  5. Spread about the same amount on top of the croissants and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve as desired.
  6. NOTE: If you plan on freezing, once you’ve added the cream to the inside and tops of the croissants and sprinkle with sliced almonds, place on a baking sheet and freeze for about 30minutes to an hour. Place them in a large freezer bag until ready to bake. When ready to bake, allow to sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes and continue to bake as instructed.
