The heat is on in Montréal to see who will be crowned baker of the city's best cannelés (or canelés), a delectable pastry with a mysterious past originally from Bordeaux France. My money is on Christelle with these gorgeous mini-cannelés. I just wish I could be there for the taste testing!
The perfect crust for folks who have an abundance of fresh ripe seasonal fruit to gobble up, for folks who are intimidated by pastry, and for folks who don't do dairy or lard. Celine says: "the crust is my (and my mom’s) favorite crust, ever: foolproof, crispy, and delicious... it’s so easy too, simply press it down into the pie plate!"
