About 15 months ago, I was in New York City with my mom and sisters.
I was totes preggers at the time.
Flying 6 hours had amazing side effects for pregnancy related swelling. 

We saw Jay Z at the airport.

Why am I talking about New York?

The other day on Facebook, my cousin Davey posted a link to the real, true, authentic recipe for the Cronut. I almost did a cartwheel. Pretty sure I actually did a fist pump and exclaimed, "YES!!"

Dominique Ansel is the creator of these amazing treats. The first flavor came out in May, we were in New York in July. I convinced two of my sisters to get up before the sun, ride the subway, walk a little ways, and then stand in line for over two hours to buy some Cronuts.

Totally worth it. And to quote what I wrote on Facebook:

"I pre-ordered his book months ago! I cannot wait to get it in the mail. AprilKristin and I stood in line for 2 hours when we were in NY last summer. Those cronuts are the most delicious, exquisite pastry item I have ever eaten in my entire life. The knockoff's I've seen, and tasted seriously do not even come close to replicating the symphony of deliciousness those delectable pastry's play upon ones tongue. I am not even exaggerating. I will be making these!! Thanks for sharing the link!!" 

The flavor we had was Blackberry with lime infused sugar, or something like that. 

The recipe says they take three days to make.

Aaron's birthday is on Tuesday.

I will be making these for his birthday.

I don't think he quite realizes what an awesome wifey you are! Maybe once he tastes these, he'll understand!
Let me know how they turn out. I'd totally take the 3 days to make them too. I'm drooling just thinking about them.
