Nutty, bubbly Gruyère to the left, dark chocolate chunks to the right, both rolled in layers of butter.
German Apfel Streusel
Apple crumb cake meets shortbread. Tart, faintly sweet, and sturdy enough to hold and eat it like Sicilian pizza.
Basically, this is your chance to eat mini croissants like popcorn.
Chocolate Chunk Cookie
Many consider this the best chocolate chip cookie in town, and no wonder: The complex, toffee-tinged batter packs tight layers of dark chocolate chunks.
The chocolate in this cork-shaped treat is just as dark and rich as in the pudding cake, but this French brownie-like confection is a bit sturdier and lighter to eat.
Red Currant Financier
Tart, juicy red currants just might be the perfect match for the richness of brown butter and almonds.
Plum and Walnut Tea Cake
A cold-weather teacake: chopped prunes and walnuts, a mellow hit of warm spices, and plenty of butter.
Rustic Fruit Tart
The flavors change regularly, but the appeal of these tarts (other than the flaky butter pastry) is that the fruit never sees too much sugar. This particular match-up, pear and raspberry, is particularly a really good one.
Crusty, puffy corks with an almost creamy core that taste like a cross between caramel, custard, and burnt marshmallows (in the best way).
