How to make stuffed croissants

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Prepare 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out the puff pastry and roll out with a rolling pin to about 45 x 40 cm. Cut in three lengthwise and then in half, leaving 6 rectangles.
  3. Then cut each rectangle into 2 triangles.
  4. Place about 1 tablespoon of the almond filling and spread on each triangle. Roll up the triangles, starting at the shorter side. Space the croissants evenly on the baking trays.
  5. In a small bowl, gently mix the egg and cream together. Brush the croissants with the mixture and sprinkle the sliced almonds on top.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before sprinkling with icing sugar and serving hot.
