- Powdered form of almonds 100g
- Powdered sugar 4 tbsp.
- water ¼ cup
- Sunflower oil 1 tbsp.
- Lemon juice 1 tbsp.
- Almond extract 1 tsp
- Vanilla extract 1 tsp
- 1 sheet of puff pastry
- 1 tsp soy milk
- 1 tsp agave syrup
- Start your recipe by preheating the oven to 360 F or 180 degrees Celsius.
- Take a standing mixture, add in all the ingredients and whisk in to form a creamy texture.
- Next, take a puff pastry sheet and cut it into the shape of a triangle.
- Now thoroughly coat each triangle-shaped dough with the almond filling and roll them to form croissants.
- Then brush the almond croissant with soy milk and agave syrup.
- Transfer the baking dish to the oven. Super yummy vegan almond croissants will get ready in 15 minutes.
- When it gets cool, sprinkle some castor sugar over the croissants and share with your friends and family.
- Sieve the powdered sugar and almond flour to make a smooth almond paste.
- Accurately measure all the ingredients to end up with perfectly baked golden and crispy croissants.
- If you make almonds croissants ahead of time, the baking time will increase.
- The selection of a baking tray plays a vital role in making your recipe perfect. You must go for a flat tray with a thin base. A tray with a thick base will retain too much heat, which can burn your croissants.
- Always place baking paper on the tray before putting croissants. In this way, your croissants will not get stick to the try.
- While arranging croissants on a baking tray, keep them some distance apart.
- If you want to store croissants, then do it as early as possible to maintain their crispiness. There is no point in storing stale croissants.
- Sprinkle icing sugar on the top after 20 minutes of baking. Otherwise, hot croissants will melt the sugar.
- You can also use chocolate, nuts, whipped cream, or any other topping of your choice.
Can Almond paste be stored?
Yes, it can be placed in a plastic bag and stored in the refrigerator for six months.
How to fix dense almond paste made for a croissant?
The almond paste must have a firm and smooth texture. If it becomes hard, you can heat it in the microwave for around 2 to 3 seconds, and it will become soft again.
How to store leftover vegan almond croissants?
The best idea is to enjoy vegan-friendly almond croissants as soon as possible, once they are baked. They become soggy too early that you lose all the flakiness and crispiness that features a perfect croissant. If it’s necessary to store croissants and maintain their freshness, simply wrap them in plastic wrap. Then you can store the croissant in the refrigerator for up to 36 hours.
How to warm up croissants?
If you plan to eat croissants the next morning, take out the croissant from the plastic bag, heat them in the oven for about 3 minutes at 365°F.
Can I freeze croissants?
Yes, if you want to freeze croissants to eat them later, wrap them in plastic paper and place them in the zip lock bag with all air out.
How to defrost Vegan Almond croissants?
To have fun enjoying frozen croissants, you need to defrost them. So, first, thaw them for some hours. Once it’s done, re-bake your vegan almond croissants for 4 minutes at 365°F.
Are almond paste and marzipan the same?
No, there is a slight difference in the texture of both. The texture of marzipan is fine as compared to the almond paste. Almond paste is less sweet than marzipan. In this recipe, I have sprinkled some extra sugar over the top of almond croissants, which will balance the sweetness. If you want to use marzipan, just be careful, or otherwise, your croissants will become extra sweet.
How to use frozen puff pastry?
Puff pastry is one of the most important elements of the grocery list. Buying one always helps you to make any dish of your choice just by getting out of the freezer and using it. The problem with frozen puff pastry is that it cannot be used immediately in the frozen form because it will crack, making your croissants shapeless. Frozen puff pastry is difficult to use as well. So thaw your puff pastry in the refrigerator.
How much time is required to thaw the puff pastry?
The best advice is to thaw your puff pastry slowly in a cool area, most probably your refrigerator. It usually takes 6 to 8 hours to thaw the pastry dough in the refrigerator.
