Peach Croissants and a Fat Toad Farm Caramel Giveaway!

Peach Croissants with caramel |



I leave Dallas today and fly to Madison to begin our house hunting trip! It’s been a crazy, stressful few weeks and the stress is going to continue but I am resting knowing these things:


  1.   We have great friends who love my family and have been praying for us and my mother and sister
  2.   A home is where you make it
  3.   God is in control; we just have to trust
  4.   I have a few jars of this caramel to get me through the tough times :)



The overwhelming support from friends and family has been wonderful. We are so thankful; there are no words. And each time I visited my mother in the hospital, there was a new plant, new orchids, vase with fresh flowers or a big ass box of fresh, sweet white peaches.


Her hospital room is filled with love.


I think it’s when things like this happen, that we realize how much we have, how precious life and health are and how awesome and supportive friends and family can be. It’s been an emotional few weeks but – for my mom and sister- I think/hope/pray we are past the hard stuff and are moving into recovery.


Each morning in Dallas, I’ve been baking (my peace/my therapy) and my little nieces and nephews have been helping. It’s been fun and when I received my jars of Farmstead Goat’s Milk Caramel from Fat Toad Farm, I wanted to re-create this delicious baked dessert I had here in Dallas at Cane Rosso, their Bella Pesca. . Vanilla bean mascarpone, caramelized peaches, sea salt and caramel on a homemade pizza-like crust. Freaking delicious.  But I am not in my kitchen and didn’t have a pastry cutter so opted for a quick recipe I knew would work out well.

Prep time

Cook time

Total time


This recipe makes 8 peach croissants.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8

  • 1-2 fresh sweet peaches (depending on the size); sliced thin
  • 2-3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3-4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry; thawed
  • mascarpone; ½ container
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • Egg wash: 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 teaspoon water
  • Caramel

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit. Slice each peach half into 6-7 slices. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Set aside.
  3. Roll out the thawed puff pastry. Mix together the mascarpone and honey and spread onto the puff pastry sheet.
  4. Cut the puff pastry sheet in half vertically and then horizontally so you have 4 equal square pieces. Rotate a square so it looks like a diamond. Place 3-4 peach slices across the center of the diamond from left to right. Sprinkle about one-fourth of the cinnamon mixture evenly over the peach slices and the puff pastry. Grab the top and bottom corners and bring them to the center, pinching them together to seal them. Repeat the process with each of the remaining puff pastry squares.
  5. Place the croissants on the baking sheet. Brush the puff pastry with the egg wash. Bake for about 23-25 minutes, or until the croissants are golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly and then drizzle each peach croissant with caramel.

    I truly believe that in this life, you get back what you give. You and your family have had such an outpouring of warmth, love and support because you are amazing people who have given the same amount, if not more. I always look forward to your updates because I know in my heart that things will just keep getting better for your mom and sister. Thankfully you’ve had baking and all your adorable little kitchen helpers to keep minds off things. These peach croissants are amazing and a brilliant idea. I’ve been seeing so many peach recipes lately and I want to bake all of them! These are at the top of my list.

    No, I have never tried goat’s caramel before. It sounds interesting though. Does it have the salty-like flavor of goat’s cheese? Now I really am curious…

    Never tried goats milk caramel although I’ve been debating making some. I make regular caramel frequently for atop ice cream. This recipe looks amazing. I’ll have to try it out with gluten free pie dough instead. I’ve figured out how to make it nice and flaky

    These look amazing Alice. I love caramel, but I’ve never heard of the ‘fat toad’ brand before. Definitely will be on the look out from now onwards, mmm! Thanks for the croissant recipe. Nothing better than a fresh, crunchy pastry, straight out of the oven :) Will be thinking of and praying for you and your family in the lead-up to the move xx

    I love goat’s milk caramel. It’s richer somehow than usual caramel.

    You certainly used it well Alice! Canned peaches (or bananas) with dulce de leche were the mandatory easy dessert in every single household in this country when I was a kid. Love the idea of puff pastry and mascarpone! Hope things are turning out well in Madison my friend.
