How to Make Your Own Cronut, and 10 Other Iconic Bakery Desserts
A sweet tooth is like a long-distance relationship. Because unless your favorite dessert is in your hand right now, it isn’t close enough. Maybe, if you’re lucky, it’s at the bakery around the corner. Or maybe it’s halfway around the world, a memory of that sweet, summertime fling you had in Paris once. You long for it. You dream of it. You write it letters, but it’s just not the same.
This week, let’s put an end to the heartbreak. Whether you pine for Momofuku’s crack pie or Pierre Hermé’s macarons, we unearthed the most iconic pastry recipes…no bakery needed. Ready your mixing bowls — we’re bringing dessert home for the night.
