Main Ingredients

8 croissants

almond syrup:

200 ml water

2 tsbp caster sugar

2 tsbp amaretto

almond cream filling:

100 g butter

100 g caster sugar

100 g ground almond

1/2 tsp salt

2 large eggs

1 tbsp. amaretto


100 g flaked almonds

2 tbsp. icing sugar


1Pre-heat the oven to 180 C/fan 160 C.

2To make the syrup, combine the water, sugar and Amaretto in a pan over a low-heat and stir until dissolved. This should only take a couple of minutes. Then let cool.

3For the almond filling, cream the butter with the sugar, ground almond and salt until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one by one and then the Amaretto until the mixture resembles a creamy paste.

4Slice the croissants in half but do not separate them completely.

5Using a pastry brush, coat the croissant inside and outside with the almond syrup. Then spread two spoonfuls of almond cream on the inside of the croissant and place on a baking tray. Repeat this process with all of the other croissants.

6Finally, spread a spoon of the almond filling on the top of each croissant before adorning with almond flakes.

7Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the filling has set and is golden. Remove from the oven and leave to partially cool before dusting with icing sugar and enjoying warm.

Additional Notes

If you don't have Amaretto to hand this can be omitted from the recipe. Simply use water and sugar for the syrup and use 1/2 tsp almond extract in the filling.
