Behold, the apple cider crodo

apple cider crodo from crisp cannoliAbout a week ago we got a question from Spencer about where to find something like a cronut here in the Capital Region. As you might know, a cronut is essentially a donut made from croissant dough. The "pastry hybrid" is said to be the creation of Dominique Ansel, a chef in Manhattan (who also trademarked the name). It's become a thing, with long lines and other accompanying zaniness.

Anyway, we posted Spencer's question. And in doing so, we mentioned -- only about half seriously -- that some local bakery should look into making an apple cider cronut. You know, because upstate.

Well, it turned out that The Crisp Cannoli in East Greenbush has been making a "crodo" -- basically its version of the cronut. And today, apparently inspired by our suggestion, it unveiled, yes... The Apple Cider Croissant Donut (AKA: CRODO).

And with that, our work here is done. Thank you and goodnight.

Here is a prime example of why AOA is the best. I can't wait to check these out. Cheers!

We tried it last night! Great maple flavor on the glaze, rolled in cinnamon sugar, and lots of flaky layers. Outside texture was on the chewy side, but I think that was the caramelized sugars in the frying process.

You can now say you truly contributed something to this world. ;-)

awwwwwwwwwwwww yeah

Hodor?

I'm with Justin. What a great find. Thanks!

So I went by on my way home from work on Friday and they were sold out (not surprised, or disappointed). Put in an order for Saturday and picked them up around 11 in the morning. Without exaggeration or hyperbole, this is one of the best things I have ever tasted.

Thanks AOA for the heads up, and thanks Crisp Cannoli for making them.
