What: Pretzel croissant.
When: As often as possible.
Where: City Bakery, 5th Ave at 18th Street, NYC.
Why: I cannot sing high enough praises for this pastry. It is both a pretzel and a croissant, rolled into one light, buttery, crispy, flaky knot of deliciousness and joy.
- Buy them early, and buy them hot. Pretzel croissants are fine at room temperature, but utterly heavenly when first warm.
- Eat all the crumbs. (Oh, there will be crumbs.)
