  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread butter on bottom and sides of a 9- to 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. In a shallow container combine eggs, half-and-half, and almond extract; add croissants. Let soak 3 minutes, turning once. Place bottom halves of croissants, cut-side-up, in the prepared dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the chocolate. Spoon on 1/2 cup LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling and 1/2 cup of the nuts. Add croissant tops, cut-sides down, remaining chocolate, another 1/2 cup pie filling and the remaining nuts. Pour on any remaining egg mixture.
  2. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until center is set. Cool on wire rack about 30 minutes.
  3. Heat remaining LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling and pass with bread pudding. Serve with ice cream, if desired.

Very good the whole family loved it.

Yum! I doubled the amount of cherry pie filling in the layers to use up the can. I also baked it in a 9x13 pan. I'm not sure how this would all fit in a deep dish pie plate. DO NOT pour the extr...

I made this for a company dinner and everyone loved it. It was both pretty and delicious. Definitely use an 8" square baking dish, or larger. It would never have fit into a pie dish. Be sure...
