Today I stopped by the Ooh La La Patisserie by my house in Calgary and picked up a few pastries to try; luckily, my brothers are home so likely I won’t be eating these all alone.
I tried both a pain au chocolat and a maple croissant.
Both were delicious: the pain au chocolat didn’t look as if it had that much chocolate in it (especially when I only cut off an end piece), but it actually did. Not sure how I missed that but it was a nice surprise when I bit into it!
I looved the maple croissant: it wasn’t super super flaky like traditional croissants, but I actually hate that because the flakes get all over my shirt, my face, and usually my hair. [Thanks, I’d like to stay a little classy as I chow down.] The outside had a nice bit of caramelizing from the maple and it had really good flavour. This just goes to show that maple syrup should be put on everything – something we Canadians have known for ages :)
These little treats were just what was needed to brighten up an otherwise dreary June morning; now, if only someone would finish them off before I eat too much….stay delicious folks!
