13. Cronuts by Dominique Ansel Bakery

The Cronut pastry is the unique creation by Chef Dominique Ansel that many have described to be a croissant-doughnut hybrid. Why is it so deliciously famous and fans are willing to line up for hours to have a taste of this sweet treat? Here is why:

Made with laminated dough which has been likened to a croissant, the Cronut pastry is first proofed and then fried in grapeseed oil at a specific temperature. Once cooked, each Cronut pastry is flavored in three ways: rolled in sugar, filled with cream or topped with glaze. The Cronut pastries are made fresh daily, and completely done in house. The entire process takes up to 3 days. There is only one flavor of the Cronut pastry every month.
