pearalmond01the photos are not-so-great.

but i don’t care because this dessert was genius.

it is pear bread and butter pudding.

however, the genius (and i wish i could take credit) is that you replace the bread with almond croissants from your favorite bakery.

so really it is pear and almond croissant pudding.

pearalmond02if you don’t feel like baking, you can stop here.

because placing a slice of a pear on top of an almond croissant is already very tasty.

pearalmond03however, if you want to have some more fun:

whisk together a mixture of 1 egg, 4 egg whites, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 3 tablespoons of sugar.

bring 500ml of milk and 500ml of cream together to a boil and add it to the above mix.

pour it over a casserole filled with sliced almond croissants and pears.

bake in a 180C oven for about 45 min.

pearalmond04and eat. preferably hot from the oven. with vanilla ice cream. and lots of people to share it with. on a snowy and cold day.
