Croissants aux Amandes in Paris

Jump to recipe

I ate these decadent Almond Croissants while in Paris at the Les Deux Magots. They are also called Croissants aux Creme D’amandes or simply Croissants Fourrés.

We arrived at the Parisian district with a special charm, an atmosphere of character and a renowned Café name Les Deux Magots! With a patio facing the church, and its waiters in black and white clothes set the tone of Saint-Germain. We came here to enjoy the incessant Parisian ballet, the silhouettes and the lights of the city, the taste of old-fashioned chocolate coming out of steaming small pots with a delicious local pastry. Life could not be more perfect sitting facing the street and eating our Croissants aux Amandes.

Plain croissants are stuffed with a rich almond cream known as “crème d’amandes“. The croissant is then flattened, covered with syrup, more almond cream and slivers. Finally baked for several minutes.
