The most common and best recognized ITALIAN  breakfast is a COFFEE and a CROISSANT, or “CAFFE`e CORNETTO“.


My children every summer, when they go to Italy to visit their grandmothers, as soon as they get off the plane, they know that the first stop is at a small bar with cappuccino and croissant.

The croissant can be stuffed with custard, Nutella (my children obviously prefer this the most), and fruit marmalade.

Now I had some puff pastry leftover in the freezer and thought I’d make croissants for breakfast.

I made pastry cream, and I also had cocoa almond cream.

I was missing Italy a bit so I figured, why not make a croissant?

Unfortunately, the shape of the croissants didn’t come out as I would have hoped but they’re still really good, I promise 😂 !
