Mothers’ Day is this Sunday and fresh almond croissants would be a lovely way for you to show how much your mother means to you.
Mums (or Moms for my North American readers) deserve more acknowledgement than just one day. So the least we can do is try to make them feel appreciated this Sunday.
These almond croissants are very easy but make a big impression on any breakfast table.
Serves 4, 10 minutes preparation plus 25 minutes cooking
8 small croissants, or 6 large croissants
125 gms butter, softened
2/3 cup of caster sugar
1/3 cup of plain flour
1 cup of almond meal
50 gms of slivered almonds
Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then beat in one egg at a time.
Sift in the flour and almond meal in and gently fold it in until well incorporated.
Spread the almond mix evenly between the croissants with a little smear on the top to stick the slivered almonds to.
Sprinkle the slivered almonds on top then bake for around 25 minutes at 180 degrees until the tops are golden.
Serve as breakfast in bed to your lovely mother with a smile.
