8 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature
1 Tbsp of All Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp Almond Extract
Pinch of Salt
1) To make the filling: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, add the egg, vanilla and lemon zest and using a handheld electric whisk, whisk for a few minutes or until the mixture becomes thick and takes on a consistency similar to a mousse.
2) Add the ground almonds and flour and mix until you have a creamy mixture.
3) Spread a bit of the filling on the bottom cut side of the croissant, put the top on, spread a little more on top, sprinkle with some almonds and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Continue with the remaining croissants, then bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
4) Sprinkle over some confectioners sugar and dig in!
