If you haven't been keeping up with dessert trends, there's a thing called the cronut, which is a doughnut/croissant hybrid only available at a single bakery in New York. The term is trademarked, so people in other cities have begun making their own versions. Starting today, you can get a doughssant at both West Town Bakery locations.
Executive Pastry Chef Chris Teixeira's doughssants are fried layers of croissant dough baked into long john-style doughnuts and filled. They're available in chocolate raspberry, blueberry lavender, and coffee cream cheese and are $3.50 each.
The doughssants are available at West Town Bakery & Diner (1924 West Chicago Avenue) and at West Town Bakery (15 East Ohio Street) inside the ACME Hotel Company.
