Best Coffee Snack....

Recommended Posts

I'm partial to biscotti of any variety, though I'll suffer through some sort of chocolate candy if I really have to - SKOR bars go amazingly well with coffee :smile: .

I buy the bags of mini Daims at Ikea and have learned to, as my coffee is brewing, dole out three candies from the bag and then to seal it and put it away. The putting away of the bag is very important, because if it remains within reach then I end up with a small mountain of red wrappers before my coffee is finished.

I have not yet learned how to do that, and always end up with a small mountain of red wrappers - and I can unwrap those suckers quickly.

Buenos Aires does inspire breaking all rules, esp when it comes to food. :biggrin: (Great picture, by the way!) I love the medialunas with a cafe con leche. Nothing like it anywhere else!

That crumb cake looks scrumptious. I'd love the recipe. Thank you!

stroopwaffle&cafe con Leche.JPG

Stroopwaffle with cafe con leche (unsweetened as the stroopwaffle is sweet enough as it is).

I ordered a box after posting the link and they arrived this morning.

Perfect!

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

A croissant - buttery, flaky, and warm. I like ham & cheese croissants best, but any will do!

I vote for a square of date nut bread with a piped-on flourish of cream cheese.


I like to bake nice things. And then I eat them. Then I can bake some more.

Anything almond, not too sweet, so marzipan is iffy.

Better yet if almond and raspberry.

Shortbread.

Just came back from Paris...

Believe me..any pastry from Fauchon or LaDuree is worth to be paired with a quality coffee.

My choice was a moist Canelé !!!
