    Please help me out. I had an almond croissant at Powell’s Books in Portland. It was dusted with powdered sugar, and almonds, and filled with a semi-liquidy almond flavored filling. I have heard they sell a similar product at Starbucks and Larry’s market. I am hoping to be able to take a store-bought croissant and turn it into this delicious concoction! Please help. Thank you.

    If you want to purchase a plain butter croissant and fill it with almond, you can start with almond filling. There's a canned brand called Solo, I believe. Also, you can make your own filling with almond paste, a little almond extract, some sugar, and softened butter. Mix that together to taste and proper texture (adding more butter or paste as needed) and pipe it into the center of the croissant that you've cut in at the bottom. By placing that filling into a ziploc bag, cutting a small bit off the corner of the bag, and extruding the mixture into the slit in the croissant, you'll have your croissant filled. You can get slivered almonds to adhere to the top of the croissant with a thin sugar/water glaze and then pop it into a low oven for a brief period of time to slightly warm the croissant and toast the nuts. Dust with powdered sugar if desired. Hope this helps.

    The best almond croissants in town are at the a la Francais Bakery in University Village - my 16 year old daughter and I make regular pilgrimages for these luscious treats!
