International Croissant Day is approaching, and we suggest you enjoy not one but many, transforming these beloved puff pastries into a unique and delicious creation: we turn this Baked croissant filled with ricotta cream into a quick Ricotta, Almond and Blueberry Pudding that will make your guests tremble. In this recipe, croissants become the base for an indulgent and comforting dessert .

To start, we fill the croissants with an exquisite mixture of ricotta and almonds, along with blueberry jam that adds that punch of intensity. This combination creates a creamy, aromatic filling that elevates the classic croissant experience to new heights.

Next, accompanying this delicious mixture, a soft liquid almond milk cream is prepared, enriched with ingredients that enhance the flavors. This mixture is poured over the croissants, creating a perfect union between the sponginess of the dough and the creaminess of the filling.

The final result is a false pudding , which combines soft layers with the freshness of blueberries, offering an exquisite bite. Let's celebrate International Croissant Day together with this indulgent and original dessert!

To make the ricotta cream:
