Easy Peanut Butter Croissants | Groundnut Croissants

Makes 8 mini Peanut Butter Croissants

Peanut butter rolled up into a steamy hot croissant – the ultimate snack, perfect with breakfast, lunch or dinner. While you are welcome to use homemade croissant dough, I had to take a short cut – it was one of those weeks. We’ll call this fast food for the home cook.

I guess you could say that my super-cook is giving way to super-mom. There was a time when I made my very own croissants from scratch. And I’ll surely do it again, once Ava gets a little bigger and I can borrow her muscles to roll out the dough. For now, thank goodness for all-natural convenience products, like Immaculate Crescent Rolls.

Ingredients:

1 package refrigerator crescent rolls (or make your own croissants with the amazing recipe in Tartine, as recommended by David Lebowitz)
8 tsp of peanut butter (1 tsp per roll)

Method:

Preheat the oven to the temperature indicated on your Crescent roll tube.

Gather your ingredients…

Roll out the dough into neat little triangles and spread with a thin layer of peanut butter. Leave a quarter to a half inch border.

Roll it up…

Getting there..

Almost!

Done!

Done! Place them on a cookie sheet and bake until golden (according to package instructions).

Just look at this. I’m telling you, it tastes like “good.”

    Looks Great! I think this just told me what Abigail and I are eating for lunch tomorrow! I can’t wait to try them!

  2. Sounds great!! The Italians love to do that same thing with Nutella. A lot of mornings in Rome that and a great cup of coffee was our breakfast.
