Jennifer, Bake or Break

These Almond Roll-Ups are part of a feature on homemade puff pastry here at Go Bold With Butter. As always, homemade just tastes better, but you are welcome to use any store-bought all-butter puff pastry if you are running short on time. These almond pastries feature a quick and simple almond filling spread inside puff pastry, then all rolled up to make a tasty handheld treat that’s perfect for breakfast or an afternoon coffee break. The combination of buttery puff pastry and sweet almond filling is irresistible.

Servings: 6-8 servings


  • 1 sheet all-butter puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped or ground almonds*
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup sliced almonds


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.

Step 2

On lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry to a 1/4-inch thick rectangle roughly 9 inches by 18 inches. Use knife to cut the pastry equally into six 3-inch by 9-inch strips.

Step 3

Combine almonds, sugar, brown sugar and salt in small bowl. Add butter and mix using fork or fingers until thoroughly mixed. The mixture will be crumbly and sand-like.

Step 4

Whisk together egg and water. Brush pastry strips with light coating of egg wash. Sprinkle almond mixture evenly over the pastry strips, leaving small border around the edges.

Step 5

Staring with short end, fold pastry over about 1 & 1/2 inches. Press down slightly. Continue folding pastry until you reach opposite end. Press end seam gently to seal.

Step 6

Place pastries seam-side down on prepared pan. Brush top of each pastry with egg wash. Sprinkle tops with sliced almonds.

Step 7

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until pastries are golden brown. Cool before serving.
*A food processor will make short work of getting those almonds as small as possible.
