  • 250 g flour
  • 210 g vegetable butter (soft)
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 80 g sugar
  • 1 mark of a vanilla pod
  • Icing sugar to turn


  • Knead all ingredients together to form until you have an even dough.
  • Shape into a thick roll and cover.
  • Let rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Then preheat the oven to 180 ° top / bottom heat and form small croissants. Then place these on the baking sheet with a little space.
  • The croissants should still be as light as possible. Depending on the oven, the baking time varies slightly from 7-10 minutes.
  • After baking, the croissants are still very soft, but after 1-2 minutes you should be able to roll them in powdered sugar.
  • If that’s too much sugar for you, you can simply use a sieve to sprinkle the powdered sugar over it immediately after baking.


If you want to tease out the nutty aroma a little more, you can briefly toast the almonds in a pan without fat. These then have to cool down before they can be put into the dough.
