I love pastry.  The flakey, sweet and buttery flavors can’t be beat.  However, baking these delights is a whole other story.  The measuring, rolling out the dough, and precise measuring are things I would rather do without, and I’ve found the perfect way to get around it. 

My streusel is everything wonderful about pastry, but without the hassle.  It is still fresh baked and warm out of the oven, but there is no mixing, measuring or wondering if it is going to all turn out.  I use the crescent dough in the can- the one that sounds like an M-80 going off when you try to open it.  I use jam and a unique ingredient- almond paste.  It comes in a tube and is found in the baking section of the grocery store.

This streusel with melt in your mouth and have your family begging for more.  So, pop open a can, scare the cat, and in less than 30 minutes you can be enjoying this sweet and flakey favorite.
