Notes

I fixed 8 generously-filled croissant sandwiches with this recipe. You could easily make 10 lesser-filled sandwiches, or double or triple the recipe to feed a crowd. 
This recipe can easily be halved for a small batch OR it keeps very well in the fridge in an airtight container for several days. 
Pecans can be left out, or substituted with walnuts or cashews.
