Almond Filling For Croissants

Serves: sufficient filling for two large all-butter croissants.



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 C.
  2. Put a small pan on your weighing scales, zero them, and then add the ingredients above in the order shown above; this is so that the ground almonds end up on top and so won't be burned when melting the mixture.
  3. Place the pan over a gentle heat and, when the butter has half melted, remove from the heat and mix the lot together with a wooden spoon to form a thick paste.
  4. Cut the croissants in half with a bread knife and spread the paste evenly across the centre of each.
  5. Close the croissants once more and bake them in the oven for 5 minutes.
