Author's Notes

Feels free to swap out the pistachios and cardamom with any other nut flour or spice combo. Just swap it out by weight. I like hazelnut and cinnamon, almond and anise, and pecan and cinnamon!

Preheat the oven to 338 degrees F (170 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

step 8
While the croissants are cooling, make the whipped cream by adding Heavy Cream (1/2 cup), Powdered Confectioners Sugar (4 Tbsp), and Vanilla Extract (1 tsp) to a mixing bowl. Whisk until you reach stiff peaks, about 4-5 minutes using a hand mixer.

Spoon the whipped cream into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip, or use a large ziplock bag with a corner snipped off leaving a 1/2-inch hole.

Once the croissants are completely cool, dust with some powdered sugar, pipe on the heavy cream and decorate with Pistachios (to taste) and Edible Flowers (to taste).
