  • Whisk in half & half, vanilla, almond extract and salt.
  • Heat butter over medium heat until it begins to shimmer.
  • Cut croissants in half and dip into the custard for 10 seconds. (do not over soak, they will fall apart! Learn from my mistakes)
  • Carefully add to the pan cut side down and cook until golden brown and a crust has formed, about 1 ½ minutes.
  • Flip and cook until the bottom is crisp and golden brown too.
