The smell of baking pastry is one of the world’s favourite aromas, and readymade puff means you can enjoy croissants with far less fuss than usual
The smell of fresh baking is one that deserves to be enjoyed by everyone. It soothes the soul, travels out of windows and into the street, spreading delight in a way no other scent can. Today’s recipe is particularly aromatic: a cheat’s croissant made with pre-rolled puff-pastry filled with a push-of-a-button pistachio marzipan and sweet cherries. So few ingredients and little work for such lovely smells and so much joy … you may as well fling open the windows (and pass a plate around).
