Blueberry Croissant Puff

I’ve eaten my weight in chicken noodle soup this week. Being sick is no fun at all. I’m having a hard time kicking it.

But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and am actually craving something that has to be chewed and not slurped.

I had someone email me and ask me if had something against blueberries because there are hardly any blueberry recipes on this site. Nope. Not true at all. I just have a hard time making time and room for every food in my life. It’s a tough problem.

But just in case you do in fact have something against blueberries, any fruit would be fabulous in this. Blueberry Croissant Puff | The Girl Who Ate EverythingHow can you go wrong with cut up buttery croissants, fruit, and a cream cheese milk mixture that is baked until golden brown. The cream cheese is not overpowering at all and this would be perfect for breakfast or even dessert. This could be easily doubled and put in a 9X13 pan.

Blueberry Croissant Puff

Yield: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 large croissants, cut up (about 5 to 5 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place croissant pieces in a 9 inch square pan. Sprinkle with blueberries.
  3. Beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer until well blended. Gradually add milk, beating well after each addition. Pour evenly over croissant pieces. Let stand 20 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until set in center and golden brown. You may want to cover it with foil for the last 10 minutes if the tops are getting too browned.
  5. Serve warm sprinkled with powdered sugar.
  6. Variation: Instead of baking in a square pan bake individually. Place croissant pieces evenly in 10 (1/2-cup) ramekins; sprinkle with blueberries and pour cream cheese mixture evenly over croissant pieces. Let stand 20 minutes. Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until set in center and golden brown.

Notes

This can easily be doubled in a 9X13 pan.

  1. Looks really good … The recipe doesn’t say when to add the fruit, but the picture tutorial shows it.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      @Pat,
      Thanks for the catch. My computer was being funky so I had to retype the recipe 3 times! I guess I forgot that part the 3rd time. All fixed now!

  2. Those three words are music to my ears….looks wonderful! And I love, love blueberries, especially in desserts!

  5. Get better soon, Christy!!!

    This looks fabulous :)

  6. Oooh…I’ve made something like this before with french bread, but the croissants sound like a wonderful change. I’m going to try this over the weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. What other fruit do you think would work well with this?

  8. This looks wonderful!

  9. YUM! I love blueberries. I think I’m going to try adding them to a bread and butter pudding soon! x

  10. I love blueberries! They are one of my favorite fruits! This looks so good! I hope you get feeling better!

  11. Oh does this look wonderful. It should help what ails you. ;) Keep getting better. These nasty bugs are taking awhile to get rid of this season.

  12. Oh goodness, that looks sinfully delicious!

  13. OMG its like a blueberry bread pudding! Looks amazing

  14. I made this over the weekend and it turned out great! I added some lemon zest to the cream cheese mixture and it was amazing. I’m excited to try this with strawberries as well. Thanks for the great recipe!

  15. This looks delicious! Do you think it would reheat well or is it better to make it and eat it right away?

  16. Absolutely trying this too.

  17. Your desserts look so good, I just found you and am so excited to make the Chocolate Eclair Cake for Easter. Thank You for the delicious recipes, can’t wait to bake more.

  18. Yummy Yummy Yummy! I made this tonight. Family loved it. TY :)

  19. Made this for our Easter brunch today and it was a huge hit… everyone asked for the recipe! Thanks!

  20. Made this for Easter Brunch today, and it got many tasty compliments. I made a couple modifications though since I am not a huge fan of cream cheese or blueberries. I mixed blueberries and raspberries, and instead of eight ounces of cream cheese, I used four ounces, and added two ounces salted butter. Came out to fluffy, soft perfection. Thank you for all your great posts!

  21. OH! NOMNOMNOM! I think I’m trying this tonight! For the benefit of my family… of course! lol Thanks for all the delish, family-friendly recipes!

  22. I made this but added a blueberry sauce to finish it off.
    One cup of sugar, 2 tbsp. cornstarch and one cup water in a sauce pan. Stir in two teaspoons vanilla extract. Stir constantly until boiling. Cook 3 or 4 minutes, lower heat and add one cup fresh blueberries. Cook until blueberries begin to burst (10 minutes or so), stirring occasionally.

    Spoon over Blueberry Puff and enjoy. Add a dollop of whipped cream if desired… yummy.

  23. Looks gorgeous. 1 cup of milk..is it enough? To pour over 3 croissants?

  24. Rachel Hester says:

    Do you think you could assemble it the night before and bake in the morning?

  25. I would love to make this over for a family vacation this weekend. I noticed you said that you could assemble this the night before, but how would you recommend doing that? Would you completely make it and let it sit in the refrigerator, or would you make the sauce and have everything ready to assemble in the morning? I’m wondering if the sauce is liquid-y enough to not solidify if refrigerated overnight. Does that make sense?

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      The sauce is really liquidy so I do not think that it would solidify overnight. I think you could make it the night before.

      • Because I didn’t have access to a mixer, I made the liquid the day before we left. I kept it refrigerated and then in the morning put it together, let sit for 20 minutes, and baked as directed. So easy and so DELICIOUS. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks so much!

      • I did make it the night before and cooked it for 30 minutes and It was great.

  26. Christy, I found yur recipe for Blueberry-Croissant-Puff on favehealthyrecipes.com. I was surprised when I found my comments were being used by them to further interest in your recipe. I would like to share with you and your followers my comments for this “KEEPER” recipe.

    “Most people look at this as a dessert, I know I did. After taking this to a family gathering for dessert (Blueberry bread pudding), and having left overs for my parents, My Mother has decided this is the best ever breakfast to start her mornings. I no longer make this as a dessert, I make it for my (Senior) mother to have all week for breakfast. Because she is a diabetic, I substitute the sugar with Splenda.”

    • What a sweet comment! My daughter is also diabetic (type 1). Good luck with your mom. My daughter isn’t a fan of blueberries so I’m going to substitute raspberries

  27. I made this and it’s delicious, I added 1t cinnamon for more flavor. I am going to double it for our next Easter brunch the family is going to love this one Thank you for the recipe!

  28. I just pulled this out of the oven, and it looks amazing. My house smells so good!

  29. This looks so delicious! Can’t wait to make it. :)

  30. Brenda Weatherman says:

    Do you think it would be OK to mix the cream ingredients night before?

  31. Made this last week. Like a blueberry bread pudding. Very delicate and good!

  32. Yummee… made this last night and added some lemon zest. Gave it a nice zing…. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!!

  33. Has anyone tried using regular sliced bread? Looks very yummy!!!

  34. Can you make this the evening before you does it need to be served immediately after making. Looking to save time and make this evening and serve tomorrow.

  35. Made this for Christmas brunch and I expected it to be good….but it was flat out AMAZING. My guests were super impressed and I didn’t tell them it was super easy. This one is definitely a keeper!

  36. Okay, with a giant case of the PMS blues, I wonder if you could do make this recipe with chocolate instead of blueberries?? Maybe chocolate chips?

    Please, please, please tell my the PMS beast yes. :)

  37. This looks so delicious, I’m definitely going to have to try this recipe! But can I ask a really random question? Where did you get your silverware? I love it!

  38. I was able to make this delicious receipt. I absolutely love it. Although I had to make a change in the receipt. My son had ate all the blueberries so I had to put strawberries instead. I would definitely do this receipt again, this time hopefully with blueberries.

  39. This look GOOD!! Just wondering, can the bread be fresh or should it be stale?

  40. I was SO excited to have my sister send me this recipe she found on Pinterest…ahhhmazing! I made it for my husband and needless to say, it was gone that evening.

    Thank you for the great idea and I can’t wait to try more of your tasty recipes since I too feel that I am a girl who eats everything!

    Strive to thrive,
    Em

  41. I made this for dessert tonight and it was a hit with the whole fam! Only things I did differently- used 4 croissants and 12 oz. of blueberries. Think I might add some lemon juice/zest next time I make it :) Great recipe! Thanks!

  42. I’ve got this in the fridge for tomorrow morning! I used raspberries, mini chocolate chips, and dark chocolate chips.

  43. Do you think you could do these in a muffin tin for the individuals as well?

  44. My first attempt is at the waiting stage before it goes into the oven, and it already looks really delicious! I can’t wait to taste it!

  45. I just made this for Mother’s day brunch. So super easy and everyone loved it.

  46. can you let it set over night in the fridge before baking it. It would be a lovely Easter morning or Christmas morning breakfast and easy if you could do it that way.

  47. cant wait to Try these on my friends for SUPERBOWL Party !!…..GO 49er’s !!!!!

  48. What an amazing recipe, this is something I have been looking for (in the back of my mind) for the longest time. Easy enough to make and looks delicious. Making this for my mother-in-law welcoming home next week! thanks :)

  49. Could you make this but just using good italian bread from a bakery? I really want to make this tomorrow but don’t have any croissants and I live in the middle of nowhere, which makes grocery shopping a twice-a-month-only thing.

  50. I have seen turnovers similar, but with cream cheese in “globs”. How could I do that here? Just a
    Pinch of cream cheese or would inhave to do something to thin it out?

    Can’t wait to try.

  51. Has anyone tried this in a crock pot?
