“This is a dish my best friend and I cooked up after finding something similar on the internet. It is of course loaded with almonds, Amaretto and almond paste and we had such a good time preparing it -- with the Amaretto of course.”
1 13x9" pan

  1. Preheat oven 350ºF.
  2. Butter a 13x9" pan and place the smallest rounds in a layer at the bottom, then top with a layer of the larger ones.
  3. Whisk eggs and sugar well together, then add half-and-half, Amaretto, vanilla and almond extracts, mixing well.
  4. Pour over croissant rounds.
  5. Sprinkle with almond paste and push down with a spoon so that the bread absorbs all the liquid.
