Just a small post …but…..if you live in the NYC area or in the city as well..firstly i’m jelly of you..and secondly you are aware of a confection called a “cronut” it’s heaven. If you are unaware….where have you been? living under a rock? …this very special treat is a combination of a donut and a croissant. It is a donut made from croissant dough a cro-nut! GENIUS…it was created and trademarked by french pastry Chef Dominique Ansel at his bakery in New York City. It is super hard to get ones hands on because they only produce a certain number of these treats a day..and in various flavors.
Those of us who not lucky enough to live in NYC have to live without these confections right?
sorry for yelling, i’m just excited…….
The fast food/coffee shop Dunkin Donuts has it’s own Cronut..however because the name is trademarked they renamed it….you ready for this…its quite clever:
THE CROISSANT DONUT!
I may have had one already..or 2…lets go with one.
It was very tasty..i’m sure the original is better..but since i’m so far from its birthplace..ill just have to live with it…
