While we love any number of flaky pastry confections, we’re particularly partial to those made with almonds. Chocolate croissants are delicious, but almond croissants? So. Good. There’s something about the thicker consistency of the almond filling, and the fact that it basically melts in your mouth, that we especially love and can’t get enough of.
Typically, we go to our favorite corner bakery to get our hands on this nutty goodness, but we were thinking about it the other day and realized there’s no reason why we couldn’t whip up a batch of our own. We made this almond pastry loaf for brunch and you wouldn’t believe how easily it came together! Using some store-bought puff pastry and a filling that we threw together in a matter of minutes, we put it all together and wrapped it up, then popped it in the oven. For brunch, or as a light and delicious midnight snack, this pretty ring hits the spot!
