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.
