Bow down to the almighty Cronut

My friend Lani introduced me to this decadent pastry and I will be forever grateful for this. If it was possible and wouldn’t leave me with scurvy, I would totally live on this pastry alone for the rest of my life.

What is it? A cronut of course! I also got that same weird look on my face first time Lani mentioned it. Yeah, that look that you have right now. I had never heard the word before either. Well, what is it then. It’s a combination of a donut and a croissant.

This one in particular is made of fluffy yet crispy layered croissant dough and stuffed with a cookies and cream filling. Gawd, my mouth is watering just looking at this. ┬áThis one is from Adriano Zumbo‘s new patisserie in South Yarra. It scares me a bit that the patisserie is kind of on my way to work. How many cronuts are too many? Infinite?
