Similar to an almond crescent, this coffee cake is light and flaky, with a rich almond center. It’s so versatile you can serve it for dessert, breakfast or brunch. It will taste as if it was made from scratch at a bakery, yet the packaged puff pastry makes the recipe quick and easy.

“A friend gave me this recipe, but it was with raisins and regular sugar, butter and sour cream which I changed to Splenda, light butter and fat-free yogurt. My husband can't tell I've changed anything but the raisins!” Carol Barbee - Jasper, Montana
Karen Smeltzer of Greendale, Wisconsin relies on a box of quick bread mix to hurry along this moist coffee cake. An easy powdered sugar glaze drizzled on top helps balance the tartness of the cranberries.
The would house smelled wonderful whenever my mom made these mouthwatering coffee cakes. Now, I bake them for holidays and special gatherings. They also make great gifts.
