Servings 6 croissants


  • 60 grams butter at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 6 croissants
  • 1 cup sliced almonds


  • Before you start, preheat oven to 170°C.
  • Make filling. Combine butter and sugar in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add vanilla and egg and mix well. Fold in ground almonds until fully incorporated.
  • Use a bread knife to slice croissants through the middle so you can open them up like a sandwich.
  • Fill croissants. Spoon 2 tablespoons of almond mixture onto the base of each croissant and spread out evenly to the edges, then close the lid. Spoon 1 tablespoon of almond mixture onto the tops of each croissant and spread out to the edges.
  • Top croissants. Place the sliced almonds onto a plate. Pick up each croissant and place them in the sliced almonds, top side down so they stick to the filling mixture. Press down firmly and squash slightly.
  • Place croissants on a lined oven tray and bake in oven for about 15 minutes, until golden and crispy.
  • Serve with a cup of coffee!
