Step-by-step guide on how to make almond croissants at home

Step #1

Purchase some party sheets from the bakery to make the almond croissants.

Step #2

Turn on the stove and heat the almond flour in a medium pan to make the almond filling. Cook for 5-8 minutes, and don’t stop stirring. Keep stirring until the flour becomes toasted and golden. Turn off the stove and let it cool down.

Step #3

Use a wooden spoon to beat the butter and brown sugar in a medium bowl for about 2 minutes. Keep mixing until the mixture is fluffy and light. Change to a whisk and gradually add each egg using the whisk. Add the flour, salt, and toasted almond flour, and whisk until satiny after adding the almond extract. By this time, the filling should be ready!

Step #4

Set the oven’s temperature to 375°F (190°C). Use parchment paper to cover a baking sheet.

Step #5

Take one sheet of each croissant lengthwise in half, but stop short of cutting through.

Step #6

Use a knife or spoon to spread the almond cream filling evenly across each half of the croissant. Be careful at coating the croissant’s top.

Step #7

Roll the sheet of croissant and gently press to seal.

Step #8

To make the egg wash, whisk the egg with the milk or water in a small bowl. Each croissant should have the egg wash applied to the top.

Step #9

Top each croissant with some sliced almonds.

Step #10

Bake the croissants for 15-20 minutes in a preheated oven, or until golden brown and the almond cream filling is set.

Step #11

Take the croissants out of the oven and give them some time to cool.

Step #12

You can serve the almond croissants hot or cold.
