Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups half-and-half
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 large croissants, torn into 1-inch pieces (about 12 cups)
  • 1 1/4 cups raspberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half, granulated sugar, vanilla, almond extract and salt with whisk.
  • 3
    Place torn croissants in baking dish; pour egg mixture over top. Push down gently so croissants absorb custard.
  • 4
    Let stand 10 minutes, and press again. Arrange raspberries on top of croissant mixture. Sprinkle almonds over top.
  • 5
    Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until browned and puffy. Let stand 15 minutes. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar.

Expert Tips

  • Blueberries or blackberries can be substituted for the raspberries in this recipe.
  • Almond extract can be a very strong flavoring -- it takes only a little bit to give this pudding a nice almond flavor.
