This can be made ahead for a delicious birthday brunch or for Mother's Day. It's easy to make but a nice complex flavor and texture combination.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The individual components of this brunch dish are amazing on their own (just try not to lick the lemon cream bowl clean)... so imagine how good it is when you put them all together! These croissants remind us of something served at a fancy restaurant. No one will guess how easy these are to prepare. The warm buttery croissant oozing with warm lemon curd and combined withe the blueberry maple syrup is a flavor match made in heaven. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
