Almond Croissant Smack Down Continues - Fleur De Lis
While visiting Cottage Grove, a quaint little town south of Eugene and hometown to my future husband, we got a hot tip about this awesome bakery in town. The next morning Justin reported that they had almond croissants, quoted as "our favorite" per website. So we had to hit that.
The almond croissant ($2.75) came obviously sliced apart and put back together again, further flattened by a heavy hand of powdered sugar. Still, it was screaming fresh and fuming with baked butter.
I ripped it open to find a sweet, almond fragrant custard-like filling inside. The croissant continued its collapsing progression after each bite. I inquired at the counter what the heck this filling was all about. Simple: butter, ground almonds and sugar. Whoa! Overall, this almond croissant was rich and extremely fresh. I would definitely hit that again next time we're in town.
And here it is.
