French Almond Croissants with Almond Paste

For a quick, simple dessert or brunch pastry, these puff pastry almond paste-filled French almond croissants (croissants aux amandes) are perfection.

Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls

We love these carrot cake cinnamon rolls at my house! The addition of shredded carrots and nutmeg to cinnamon roll dough makes them even tastier. Top them with a vegan cream cheese glaze or my vegan sugar glaze for a perfect sweet breakfast or delicious dessert. I’ve slightly adapted a recipe from Mindful Avocado, omitting […]
