|Not-cronuts at Swiss Haus Bakery|
Like the original by New York’s Dominique Ansel (and several imitators from Chicago to Los Angeles), the new pastry is a round of croissant dough that’s fried like a donut. Swiss Haus then fills the sweets with vanilla pastry cream and tops them with cinnamon glaze.
Swiss Cro-crèmes go for $5 each, but that hasn’t kept them from selling out each morning so far. To try to keep up with demand, the 19th Street bakery has just announced that you can call to pre-order (two per person) the night before, though the total number they’ll serve is still limited. If you do get your order in on time, expect it to emerge from the oven around 11 AM (215-563-0759).
