What’s a Cronut (and Where Can I Get One in Westchester)?
Joe Floriano, owner of Enrico’s Pastry Shop in Hartsdale, gives us Westchester’s answer to Manhattan’s Cronuts.
What the Heck Is It?
A croissant and donut hybrid made with ⅔ croissant dough and ⅓ donut dough. It’s folded like a croissant but shaped and fried like a donut. It also has frosting and filling like a donut.
There are three now (but more are on the way): Boston cream, raspberry Madagascar vanilla bean cream, and lemon cream with salted caramel. And, only on weekends: glazed with Bavarian cream and topped with jelly.
Get ’Em Quick
Up to 175 are made daily, depending on the day; most days are sellouts.
“These stand on their own,” says Floriano, “but a glass of milk or cup of coffee works.”
