Canelles



I'd never seen these amazing little French pastries before encountering them on eGullet.com. They are baked in special molds coated with an oil/beeswax mixture. The outside is dark and chewy, while the inside is creamy and custardy. I baked these several times over the course of a few weeks, trying the traditional vanilla/rum as well as chocolate versions. They are delicious.
