These fig almond croissonts are stuffed crescent rolls full of fig jam and almond paste, all rolled up together for an easy and amazing morning pastry, fig almond croissants.
I couldn’t believe how easy AND how absolutely delicious these fig almond croissants were. I know I could have eaten the whole batch if I didn’t have to share with my family.
I have been in love with figs almost since day one. Last fall I found a grower where I purchased fresh picked from the tree figs. They had the most amazing taste. I put each fig to good use; either in this wonderful Watermelon Spinach Salad or out of this world Fig Pear Pizza and the best Fig Pistachio Ice Cream. A lot of the figs went to a wonderful fig, goat cheese combo snack but I also made a delicious fig jam or spread with the remaining of them. And I am grateful that I did so I could enjoy some fig jam for just the right treat down the road.
I put together the just right treat for you and me with these fig almond croissants. If you love figs like I do, which I hope you do, and if you love almond pastries, you are truly going to love fig almond croissants.
Sometimes I worry that my creations are just a little off, and maybe they are. Nevertheless I spread some fig jam on ready to bake crescent rolls topped with a smidgen of almond paste – I cut a slice of almond paste and shaped it into a 1 to 1.5 inch tube, kind of like playing with play-dough – rolled up my crescent rolls and baked. Ta da, it was that easy and they passed both the 6 year old and the 20 month old taste test plus the grandpa test too.
Seriously, I should have made more. You can. You don’t have to limit yourself to only 8, the recipe is easily doubled or tripled as a matter of fact. And just so you know I only used about 1/3 of the almond paste – so tripling the recipe here we come.
