Preparation Time20 min

Cooking Time1 hr


  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (2 sheets)
  • 1/2 cup canned almond filling
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Cinnamon Croissants with Almond Filling


  1. Thaw the pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes or until they're easy to handle. Heat the oven to 400°F. Stir the almond filling and cinnamon in a small bowl. Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut each pastry sheet into 4(about 5-inch) squares.

  2. Spread 1 tablespoon almond mixture on each pastry square to within 1/4-inch of the edge. Fold the pastry squares over the filling to form a triangle. Starting at the wide end, roll up the pastry triangles toward the point. Place the pastries, point-side down, on a baking sheet. Curve the ends of the pastries inward to form a crescent shape. Brush with the egg.

  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.

What a rich and buttery way to start the day. Do you think I could make something else for a filling? My daughter is allergic to almonds, so I have to use peanuts or something else. I like chocolate and cream too. Boston cream croissants sounds decadent enough for a fancy party even.
