Treats from a Local Bakery

Ok, I'm wicked tired. I'm not doing a recipe today, I just don't have the energy to do all that writing. So here is some deliciousness made by the bakery down the street from my apartment. Let's see, what do we have... a couple chocolate croissants, some carrot cake, a raspberry/lemon danish thingie, a raspberry turnover and, the real stand out of the selection, a slice of strawberry cheesecake. I think it was Italian style, it had a layer of marscapone between the crust and the cake. And it was on a pie crust, not a graham cracker one. It was awesome. Has anyone ever seen cheesecake like this before?

I have not seen one like this before, but I'd love to try it...sounds delish! And oh man, I love chocolate croissants (right after almond ones) :)

noobcook: It is nice sometimes, although having pastries for dinner didn't help our efforts to lose weight. ;)

girlichef: It was mad good, so were the croissants. Lots of chocolate in there.

5 Star Foodie: Heh, me too.

Dawn: Really? I would think the Cape would have decent ones...

noble pig: It was. :D

If I lived down the street from such pastry goodness, I'd be in heaven (or in the hospital for bypass surgery).

Cheesecake wins!!! When you said marscarpone layer, it was a done deal.

Hayley said...

They all look soooo good! Ugh, I'm a pastry addict for life :)

My hubs wants me to go to pastry school so I can make him treats everyday! Like we could afford that, plus the bakery all ready does a bang up job!

Emily said...

No I haven't! That cheesecake looks incredible.

That looks great! A wonderful way to treat yourself when you are tired! :)

Sometimes you just need to take a day off. A slice of cheesecake is just the thing for a relaxing evening and a treat.

Bob said...

Elra: Yeah, it was mad good. I'm definitely getting it again.

Tangled Noodle: I know, it's dangerous. We have to be careful how often we go, we always get tons of stuff. You know how it is, "Oh this looks good, lets get it! This too! Look at that..." Heh.

duo: Can't blame you. I'm already working on a recreation. ;)

Hayley: Me too. I'd say we should start a support group, but everyone would bring pastries...

tamilyn: I have a buddy to majored in pastry making, he does some cool stuff. Course, he's still paying it off...

Emily: It was!

JennDZ: Especially when someone else gets it for you. ;)

Pierce: So true.

Man, I haven't even had breakfast yet and you show me this stuff?!?! Wow! You are very lucky to have such a place close by!

I'm a little late to this post but I'll trade you a Colombian empanada for that cheesecake. :)
