  • 12-16 small croissants can be made with 8 large
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 tbsp good quality vanilla extract

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 4 oz mascarpone cheese room temperature
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar plus more for dusting
  • 2 cups strawberries sliced


  • In a large mixing bowl add cream cheese, mascarpone, powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Take approximately 2 tablespoons and spread inside each croissant.
  • In a mixing bowl add eggs, half and half, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Dip each filled croissant in the egg mixture. Place in a round buttered baking dish. Repeat until you have filled and dipped each croissant. It is okay to pile them on top of each other!
