Recipe Spotlight

Delicious Almond Braids

This coffee cake is very similar to an almond crescent. It is light, flaky with a rich almond center. It's so versatile you can serve it for dessert, breakfast or brunch. This will taste like it was made from scratch at a bakery, yet the pakaged puff pastry, makes this recipe very quick and easy to make.—Gina Idone, Staten Island, New York
