  • I tin croissant dough
  • 3 x 1cm slices natural marzipan from block
  • 6 heaped tsp mixed dried fruit sultanas, raisins, currants (soaked in brandy or sherry overnight to plump and drained) or
  • 6 heaped tsp mincemeat mixed with a little brandy or sherry to loosen
  • 1 egg beaten for egg wash
  • icing sugar for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 200ÂșC.
  • Place a sheet of baking paper on a large baking tray.
  • Unwrap and unroll the croissant dough and cut along the serrated lines.
  • Cut the marzipan slices in half and roll out into long sausage shapes a few centimetres short or the longest side of the croissant dough.
  • Lay the marzipan sausages along each outer edge of the dough triangles (about 1 cm in).
  • Spread the soaked fruits or mince meat over the dough triangles avoiding the outer 1cm.
  • Roll up the dough from the marzipan side, bend and tuck the ends of the dough under the middle of each croissant and place on baking tray.
  • Brush each croissant with egg wash.
  • Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 13 - 15 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack and then dust with icing sugar.
