After about 7 hours on the countertop, that go from a totally flat rectangle of dough to a large puffy little package of delightful goodness!
I took them out of the freezer the night before baking them, place them on parchment paper on a baking sheet and left them on the counter for about 8 hours.
Bake according to the package directions and they puff up into golden brown pastries.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy while hot!
Very flakey crispy crust just melts in your mouth! The pumpkin seeds add a bit of crunch!
Each croissant is filled with a pumpkin pie filling that is so good! What a treat!
I went back to get 12 boxes for the holidays!
Such an easy hassle free treat to prepare for my family and guests!
This weekend at our Romancing the Home Holiday House, we tried the Trader Joe's Macarons.
At $4.99 a box for 12 cookies, that is quite a bargain. I have never paid less than $2.00 for a single macaroon. I took them home and stored them in the freezer.
There is an assortment of 6 flavors inside the box.
I also bought a box of Pumpkin Macarons - again 12 in the box for $4.99.
The pumpkin macaron really tasted like pumpkin- light exterior, not at all crumbly. Very good!
The overall size is perfect- 3 to 4 bites per cookie!
Serving these with a caramel mousse for Thanksgiving would be a wonderful dessert!
Open box of the multi flavored macarons- such a pretty color combination!
My favorites were the coconut and fig ones!
The fig and lemon macarons. The fig one tasted like a Fig Newton, but much prettier!
They are such a pretty cookie! A perfect little bite of sweetness!
I am definitely heading back to Trader Joe's for more of these. Great value for the money!
