I had hoped to make these almond croissants for my brother when he was here recently. But time got away from us and cakes seemed to be everywhere... so I just made them yesterday. A comfortable kirsch frosting sets them off to perfection.



Little hands brush lightly with egg white...



And they are gobbled up in about half a minute by a hungry (and I must confess appreciative) family! All the work seemed worth it when my Russian came home from work eyes shining from the smell of fresh baked goods.

Must be a puff pastry, they look like a treat at a Dutch bakery I was at yesterday.They make them in a "S" shape and call them Dutch Letters.

Yes, they are made with puff pastry! But like your Dutch Letters must be, they are worth every calorie!

Those look yummy. I made some recently with Nutella in the middle. I didn't tell my girls so that when they took a bite they would find the surprise. They loved them. Doesn't every family love fresh baked treats? Carla
