I love pastries! I don’t know if love even sums up the affair I have with them! However, I will not eat just any pastry. It must be a really good, buttery (not too buttery), flaky (not dry) pastry. My husband has labeled me the pastry snob, but I like to call me a connoisseur. I looked the word up just to make sure that I was qualified.
• CONNOISSEUR (noun)
The noun CONNOISSEUR has 1 sense:
1. an expert able to appreciate a field; especially in the fine arts
I think I partially qualify for the connoisseur title. I am not an expert, but I appreciate a pastry with the best of them. Anyway, I try pastries everywhere and often when I should know they are not going to be up to my standards, but when I am craving them, it is worth the shot. Well, I found the most wonderful pastries for a great price! I will show you pictures and see if any of you can guess what bakery they may have come from.
Le Pain au Chocolat (A croissant with dark chocolate chunks):
So buttery! So flaky!
Le Croissant Amandes (A croissant filled with delightful almond paste):
What fabulous French bakery do these come from??
Can you believe it? Target! I could not believe how good these croissants are for the money. I am so impressed with the bakers at Archer Farms. So to those folks…from an amateur pastry connoisseur…keep up the good work!
