Taking Questions! Question #2

Eating Out

Today is the LAST day to enter my SodaStream giveaway!  You can enter once/day via twitter!

Welcome to my 2nd post in my Taking Questions series!  Question #2 comes from Evelyn S, who asks:

“Where in NYC can I get THE BEST baked apple dessert (tart, strudel, pie, cobbler, etc)?”

Well, BEST is definitely a matter of opinion, but my favorite dessert in NYC (besides my apple pie – I make an awesome apple pie, if I do say so myself! 😉 ) is the Chausson Aux Pommes from Balzathar Bakery in Soho.  It literally translates into “Apple Slipper,” and is a French equivalent to the American apple turnover.  The one at Balthazar is especially flaky, buttery and full of apple filling – and if you happen to get one fresh out of the oven, you’ll just melt in euphoria.  Add to that the ambiance of this tiny bakery pick-up locale, and you’ve got yourself a winner.  Pick up a Chausson Aux Pommes from Balzathar Bakery and a hot tea, and stroll leisurely along the hidden streets of Soho.  You can thank me later! 🙂

What is your favorite apple dessert? Any recipes to share?
