Almond crescent vegan, can it get any better? I think not, because these crooked beauties already come very close to my personal favorite pastry. Now comes the time again when I have to hide the Christmas cookies from my husband. It always asks me to do this, because otherwise he always makes a stop at the delicious Christmas sweets and not too scarce. Since I also have a hard time resisting, I also like to give the baked goods as gifts to my family. My dad is always especially happy about it.

I look forward to Christmas baking every year. Especially when the days get shorter, it’s a nice activity to pass the time with small-scale cookies. A little Christmas scent from the fragrance lamp and, of course, from the oven. The best part is then tasting your favorite cookies. Here I am usually not fast enough, because my husband likes to be ready when I get the cookies out of the oven.

Our almond croissants today are really quick to make and you don’t need a lot of baking experience to make them either. A food processor, some time and patience, an oven and a handful of ingredients. Ground almonds, flour, raw cane sugar, starch, marzipan, bourbon vanilla and vegetable milk. For decorating you still need almond flakes and dark vegan chocolate.

Make almond croissants yourself

TIP: The dough does not necessarily need to go back into the refrigerator before processing. I process it right away and just sprinkle a little water on my hands. This way the croissants can be rolled wonderfully and go straight into the oven.
