My daughter and I fell in love with the most scrumptious almond filled croissant in Los Angeles last year and I've been on a mission to continue looking/enjoying them as I find them. The version we had in Vermont, just wasn't the same...it had almond flavor, but also apple in it.
In the meantime, I stumbled across an Almond Coffee Cake recipe that included an almond filling, so I thought I'd give it a try. I knew it wasn't going to have the flaky pastry on top, but the almond filling and struesel caught my attention. Plus, the recipe was already adjusted for high altitude baking!
