Have you guys ever had a canelé? While I've seen photos of them for a long time, I only first tried one earlier this year after my friend Mari introduced me to them. This petite French pastry has a custard batter that's baked inside the prettiest mold.


The result is a caramelized crust and custard-like inside. It has my favorite kind of texture—a mix of firm, with bite on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside. It's how I love my cookies too. You might think I was fancy and made these, but I avoid baking French desserts at all costs. There are people who go to school for years for that kind of thing! I got this one at my favorite bakery in LA, Proof, and will happily let them be the experts at making them while I'll be the expert at eating them... — Joy
