Blueberry Croissant Puff. A lovely easy recipe perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert! Great with custard or ice cream too!
Blueberry Croissant Puff! Oh boy, this is a keeper recipe! It's full of delicious blueberries, bursting with juiciness. The croissant filling is lovely and puffy and made creamy and luxurious with the addition of cream cheese.
This is perfect for a dessert, a breakfast or a brunch. It takes no time at all to prepare, and you can bake it right away or indeed, prepare the night before and refrigerate until the following day then bake.
Serve as it is, warm, chilled, with a blob of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and it will soon become a favorite recipe in your home too!
Nanny Pat always has the most wonderful, easy recipes and this one was adapted from our Lovefoodies Peach Croissant Puff recipe. The peach one also has the addition of coconut milk and leaves out the cream cheese. So you can decide which you prefer, or even make them both!
