Stopping by Fritz’s Pasty I noticed that they had one of my favorite items. Now I have to warn you that this is a favorite for a lot of people. Most of the time I stop by they’ve sold out of the Almond Croissants.
The Almond Croissant and a cup of French Roast coffee is the perfect “pick me up” for the mid afternoon drag.
The brioche is an extremely versatile platform for producing some of the most interesting and delicious bake goods. I discovered the St. Tropez cake recently at Fritz Pastry.
This is a brioche that has been sliced into two halves. Sandwiched between the two halves you find vanilla custard and butter cream. If you are at Fritz Pastry you have to try this.
For anyone following this blog they must be thinking that I have cupcake on the brain. As it turns out this morning I went to Fritz Pastry and decided that I wanted something very basic for breakfast.
Scanning the baker’s rack I knew I found my love of the day. The basic butter croissant. Well there’s actually nothing basic about this. Warm it ever so slightly and it melts in your mouth.
If someone were to offer you a macaron the image that comes to mind in the USA is coconut. These chewy globs of coconut, cookie and sugar have some how come to mean macaron to us. When I stepped into Fritz Pastry I was looking for coffee. Coffee is one of my admitted addictions. If I smell coffee in the making it’s almost a given I’ll be drinking.
The pastry display at Fritz is simple but effective. At the star position in the case are these little sandwich cookies of various colors. Once you look you hooked. I scanned the entire case but my eyes would continue to drift back to the top row. Upon asking I was told the object of my eye are the macarons. Now this ain’t my father’s macaron. These are prepared in true Parisian style. The various flavors will offer something for almost any taste bud. I shared my find with a friend and she said that the pistachio are worth killing for. As for me I did have the coffee. I had coffee to complement the mocha macaroon.
