I am sucker for nontraditional twists on the everyday croissant, so it makes sense that I fell for Bouchon Bakery's Raspberry-Almond Croissant. Where to begin? With the interior layer of seed-speckled raspberry jam tucked between the buttery folds? Or with the toasted almonds on top, a whimsical parade with powdered sugar and a tart dusting of raspberry powder? Perhaps it's best to take a big bite and get it all in one flaky sweet mouthful. Considering how pricey Bouchon Bakery can get, $2.95 isn't bad at all for this fancy croissant.
