Blackberry Lemonade Stuffed Croissants Are The Next-Level Baked Good You Need To Try

For the past six months, the pastry-baking geniuses running Costa Mesa’s newest dessert hot spot, Dough & Arrow, have made a name for themselves as OC’s newest baker on the block, consistently whipping up colorfully decadent cookies, croissants and specialty coffee beverages.

Now, Dough & Arrow’s two newest creations enlist the help of a well-known sweet, summertime beverage that is sure to turn heads all winter long.

The Blackberry Lemonade Stuffed Croissant is made with purple dough, and stuffed with blackberry jam, and Dough & Arrow’s creamy custard filling. Then, this soft, flaky Instagram-worthy pastry is topped with a bright purple Blackberry Lemonade glaze, made with Hubert’s Blackberry Lemonade.

Another new addition to Dough & Arrow’s robust menu of coffee beverages, cakes, and pastries is the Lemon Cream Pie Tea. This creamy treat is made with mixture of Dough & Arrow’s popular Black Tea, Hubert’s Lemonade and is topped off with a thick helping of whipped lemon cream.  

Whether you want to warm up, or just chill out, a stop at Dough & Arrow in Costa Mesa will sweeten up your holiday season with some unique lemonade-infused creations you won’t find anywhere else.

Kit Kat Croissants Are Japan’s Newest Delicacy And They Look AMAZING

Kit-Kat-Croissant

Pronto, a coffeehouse in Japan that serves everything from pastries to pizza, just added an amazing new pastry to its menu: Kit Kat Croissants. Let’s take a moment to appreciate how awesome something like this exists.

RocketNews24 reports that the pastry is served in two different varieties: The Kit Kat Croissant for Cafe and the Matcha Green Tea. The first features the traditional milk chocolate bars inside the croissant, while the latter uses the popular green tea Kit Kat.

Each Kit Kat Croissant can be eaten as is, or toasted upon request for a meltier snack.

If you’re currently in Japan or plan a trip out sometime in the near future, please bring us back some. Not joking.

IHOP Threw Croissant Dough Into a Waffle Iron, Criss-Croissants They Call It

IHOP-CrissCross

New to IHOP, the International House of Pancakes, are Criss-Croissants. The pancake chain appears to be dabbling in hybrid breakfast pastries with this new, limited-time item that slightly resembles a Waffle Taco.

Slightly.

Using croissant dough, the breakfast dish is cooked in a waffle iron. This process creates a waffle-like texture, while maintaining the light flakiness of a croissant. Then they just cram it with sweet stuff.

The two flavors are Blackberry Lemonade (lemonade cream that’s topped with blackberries) and Strawberry Rhubarb (sweet cream cheese topped with strawberry rhubarb).

The Criss-Croissants are available through April 5, 2015. They can be found at participating IHOP locations with prices varying depending on location.
