While I was staying in West Seattle with a friend, she mentioned a fabulous bakery down the road from her house. It went something like this:
"blah blah blah - Almond Croissants - blah blah blah"
The next morning, I did a power wake-up, jumping in my whip to find Bakery Nouveau and its famous Twice Baked Almond Croissants.
The croissant itself was of superior bakery quality - rich with real butter, crispy, soft and ultra fresh. I took its top off to find a thick slather of the sought after amalgam. The skin-on almond filling was definitely on the sweet side of town. The word decadent comes to mind when I think about this almond croissant experience. And full.
