Recipe Tips

  • We used fresh croissants from the bakery.
  • We highly recommend letting the croissant and cream cheese mixture sit for a while and preferably overnight as it will help absorb all the liquid into the croissants resulting in a more flavorful and moist croissant bake.
  • Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature so it will mix well with the other ingredients.

Substitutions

For a chocolate version skip the berries and the lemon zest and add one cup chocolate chips to the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top and bake as instructed.

Can you use frozen berries instead fresh?

Yes, you can make this recipe using fresh or frozen berries. I’ve used both and it tastes amazing either way.

What else can you use instead of croissants?

We used buttery croissants from the bakery but you can use one loaf of bread cut into cubes. If the bread is a couple of days old that’s ok!
