Berry croissants: a yummy idea. Photo courtesy Castello Cheese.
For Sunday brunch or afternoon tea*, here’s a fun alternative to a chocolate croissant that provides another reason to enjoy seasonal berries.
RECIPE: BERRY CROISSANTS
Berries: blackberries, raspberries, strawberries or a mix
Mascarpone, fresh chèvre (goat cheese—look especially for the honey chèvre at Trader Joe’s), cream cheese or other spreadable cheese
1. SPLIT the croissant and spread the bottom half with cheese.
2. ADD the berries, whole or sliced, depending on size.
Thanks to Castello USA for the idea (they used blue cheese).
*Who has afternoon tea, you say? Well, THE NIBBLE is a far cry from Downtown Abbey, but we serve afternoon tea daily. Not everyone drinks tea, but it’s our chance to sample some of the many foods that arrive at our doorstep—baked goods, candy, jam, crackers, cheese, pâté and so forth—including coffee, tea and other beverages. If you want to serve a proper afternoon tea, here’s how.
