Heaven in almond croissant form 

Sunday mornings call for Breakfast At Tiffany’s and if there’s one thing you must know about me, it’s that I can’t watch Breakfast At Tiffany’s without a pastry. My pastry of choice is a croissant – plain, chocolate or almond.

Today it was almond and I found the perfect cheat’s version. In fact it’s so easy that Bella and her 15 month old cooking skills helped.

Recipe from taste.com.au


150g butter, softened
