A classic French pastry that we’ve come to know and enjoy. It’s buttery and flaky exterior combined with a creamy filling will make a heavenly breakfast treat. Today, we’re going to add some cream cheese and strawberry filling to take it to the next level. Enough for 8 servings, everyone will love you for serving this at breakfast.
Everyone has tried croissant at least once. My best experience actually comes when I visited my parents. There’s a cute little bakery near my parent’s house, and we haven’t had any breakfast. Long story short, we ended up buying two dozen of the most delicious croissant. I went into research mode after we went home and just had to make a recipe for it. I know my husband and kids will really enjoy it.
If you want to take it up a notch, add a scoop of gelato to the croissant, and you’ll have yourself two of the most delicious European treats in a plate. A hot cup of black coffee also a great pair for it. Or, you can add some fresh fruits for the topping. Get a little creative and serve something unexpected for breakfast.
