Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread butter on bottom and sides of a 9- to 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. In a shallow container combine eggs, half-and-half, and almond extract; add croissants. Let soak 3 minutes, turning once. Place bottom halves of croissants, cut-side-up, in the prepared dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the chocolate. Spoon on 1/2 cup LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling and 1/2 cup of the nuts. Add croissant tops, cut-sides down, remaining chocolate, another 1/2 cup pie filling and the remaining nuts. Pour on any remaining egg mixture.
  2. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until center is set. Cool on wire rack about 30 minutes.
  3. Heat remaining LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling and pass with bread pudding. Serve with ice cream, if desired.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was a great starter recipe. I had left-over croissants, but no cherry pie filling, so I made the following changes. Omitted the cherries, almonds and chocolate and added apple pie filling and cinnamon. I doubled the custard, adding a loose cup of brown sugar and about a tsp of cinnamon. I used enough croissants to fit in a 9 x 13 pan - I think it was six very large croissants. I assembled as instructed: soaking the bottom croissants topping with apple pie filling and adding the top croissants - also soaked. Poured the custard over the top, and pressed down to distribute custard evenly. Boy was this ever good!

What a great dessert! So easy & quick!! I substituted shaved chocolate for the chocolate chips and used half the can of cherry pie filling for each layer. It reminds me of a cross between cherry pie and bread pudding, very unique. This is a keeper!
