For the past few days, I’ve been in a rather unusual blue funk that has left me pretty much uninterested, apathetic, and completely morose. Truth be told, it’s the sort of mood that actually kills my appetite (not a good thing in a home-cook / food blogger).
But, thank goodness, there are still a number of tasty little niceties that are scrumptious enough to tempt even the most jaded appetites!
The triangle aux amandes over at Paris Delice is one of them. It is, essentially, a buttery puff pastry turnover filled with almond cream. Sounds simple? It is – well, until you take a bite.
The pastry is gorgeously buttery: crisp to the bite, tender within. The almond cream is absolutely smooth and the flavors nutty and not too sweet.
I recommend popping this into a toaster oven for a couple of minutes to crisp up the exterior nicely. Pair this with a cup of milky tea, and even the worst of days will have a bit of sunshine – at least, in my opinion. 🙂
