We Present America’s Greatest Success: Ice-Cream Doughnuts

The great hybrid dessert wave shows no signs of stopping

In the beginning, there was the cronut, and the cronut was good. 

But now, we’re moving on to other pastry-shop mash-ups.

Dominique Ansel’s croissant + doughnut still gets the lines in New York City, but we turn our attention to an even more cunning reinvention of the doughnut: Five Daughters Bakery’s new ice cream doughtnuts

We don’t understand the baking magic behind this particular treat, but imagine a doughnut with an ice cream filling rather than jelly, and you’re basically there. 

Pro: Every doughnut will be made to order.  Con: Every doughnut will be made to order on the premises of Five Daughters Bakery, in Nashville

If you live in Nashville — well, good for you. 

Otherwise? Put it on the bucket list. We hear Tennessee’s amazing this time of year.
