How To Make Almond Croissant Pop Tart

  1. Get your oven ready by preheating it to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. In a bowl, combine the Nature’s Eats almond flour, sugar, egg, almond extract, and room temperature butter. Mix everything together until you have a smooth and creamy filling.
  1. Lay out one of the pie crusts on your prepared baking sheet. Spread the almond filling evenly over the pie crust, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. This border will help create a nice seal when you add the top crust.
  1. Place the other pie crust on top of the filling, gently pressing down to ensure everything is even. Use a fork to crimp the edges of the dough together, creating a secure seal.
  1. Pop your Almond Croissant Pop Tart into the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is lightly golden brown.
  1. Once baking is complete, remove the pop tart from the oven and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack before adding the glaze.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, almond extract, and milk until you have a smooth and pourable glaze. Adjust the amount of milk as needed to achieve your desired consistency.
  3. Spread the prepared glaze generously over the top of the cooled pop tart.
  4. For an extra touch of almond flavor and crunch, sprinkle some toasted sliced almonds over the top of the glaze. You can also dust the pop tart with a little extra powdered sugar for a beautiful finishing touch.
  5. Cut your Almond Croissant Pop Tart into slices and savor the delicious combination of flaky crust, creamy almond filling, and sweet glaze.

Variations & Substitutions

  • Add a layer of raspberry or apricot jam before spreading the almond cream for a fruity twist. 
  • Substitute the almond extract with vanilla extract for a classic flavor. 
  • Drizzle melted chocolate over the top for added indulgence. 

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I omit the almond extract?

While the almond extract is what gives this pop tart its signature flavor, you can omit it if you prefer. If you do choose to leave it out, you may want to consider adding a different extract, like vanilla, for a touch of additional flavor.

How can I store and reheat leftover Almond Croissant Pop Tarts?

These Almond Croissant Pop Tarts are best enjoyed fresh, but they can be stored for up to 3 days at room temperature in an airtight container. To reheat, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and warm the pop tart for a few minutes until the filling is warmed through and the crust is slightly crisp. You can also toast individual slices in a toaster oven for a quick and easy reheating option.
