Almond Stuffed Crescent Rolls

So remember when I made that Sweet Almond Pastry?? Well I found an even easier way to create it using crescent rolls!

Normally I use puff pastry and braid it, but in a pinch I used a can of crescent rolls I had in the fridge. I was a little nervous until I tried my first bite — YUM.

Then Jorge and the girls got their hands on them and they were gone within seconds. I swear I saw Jorge with one in each hand at one point. Once you frost them they are like warm almond filled donuts!

    These are delicious and so easy!  I’m mad that I left them in the oven too long and the bottoms are a little over done, but still tastes so good!

      Hi Maggie – do you mean to just heat them back up or to cook them?

      Yes, you can reheat them in the microwave – just heat them for about 10 seconds or less. Should be soft and warm again!

      No, you can not cook them in the microwave. They must be baked in an oven.

    Are you using the almond paste in a can or the one that comes in a soft roll?
    These look fabulous and I can’t wait to try. Have you tried to reheat the next day. There is only the two of us> Thanks for any answers.

      Almond Paste comes in both a soft roll or can — either is fine! Just make sure it says PASTE on the packaging! 🙂  And I would recommend making a half batch with the little can of 4 crescent rolls. They really don’t reheat well. Hope you enjoy them!
