I don't suppose that I've invented a new game, but here are some croissants aux amandes I made recently.I made these after our blogger 'neighbour' Ken (Living the Life in Saint Aignan) posted about making them and provided a link to the recipe on Clothilde's blog Chocolate and Zucchini.
So I link to Ken and he links to Clothilde.
My notes after making these say I did not use the rum option (not fond of rum, especially for breakfast), and I agree with Ken that the recipe is enough for 8 croissants, not the mere 4 that Clothilde suggests. I did dip them in the syrup, unlike Ken, because, like Ken, I didn't heed Clothilde's advice to get the best possible croissants - I used Tesco Value all butter croissants . I made the syrup and the almond cream the night before and then put them together and baked for breakfast the next morning. In my oven, which I know is rather slow, they need 15 minutes at 190°C.
They turned out so well I am going to experiment with chocolate ones and marmalade ones. Miam miam !
