A little German Bakery….

I was reading through my “about Granola Girl” for the first time in a long while yesterday and completely forgot the section that said “I hope to share… pictures of food tasted & tested along the way!” Well, I will have to fix that! πŸ˜‰

Am I the only one who thoroughly enjoys trying new bakeries & coffee shops? πŸ™‚ Take a drive down the old country road, past the peach stands and a few sheep farms, through the hill country, and the very very tiny town of Albert where only a old-fashioned dance-hall stands and you will find yourself in the Fredricksburg, Texas! Well known for its German settlement, Fredricksburg draws tourists from around the world and me! πŸ™‚ I enjoy strolling the main street, looking into shops, and eating a delectable German pastry from my new favorite find, the Old German Bakery & Restaurant! Pastry of choice? The Cherry Cream Cheese Danish! Tart cherries, cream cheese center, a slightly sweet Danish dough, and they must share my love for crumb topping and glaze because it has both!! πŸ˜‰ So, if you find yourself driving down the old country road, past the peach orchard and the sheep farms, through the hill country and the very very small town of Albert, pick up a Cherry Cream Cheese Danish! Or you can come visit ME and I’ll take you. πŸ™‚

    Yes to Cherry Danishes! I think I need to try making those sometime. πŸ™‚ Your bakery experience sounds loads better than ours this morning. We went to a coffee shop in the city for crepes and they were the worst crepes I’ve ever had. We’ve been wanting to try them for months now, so it was very disappointing. I’m still glad we did it though – now I don’t ever need to think about going there again! There’s a good side to (almost) everything right? πŸ˜€

    Post the recipe if you give them a try!! I would love to see how you do them. πŸ™‚

    Yes!! I have had those bad bakery experiences too{really hard to find a good bakery these days, isn’t it?!} You get all excited cause you hear this place is the best, day dream about what your going to order for a couple weeks, finally work up the courage to scout out the place and try it, show up super hungry, bite into whatever it is you ordered, and then think “why didn’t I just stay home and make it myself??” πŸ˜‰ Happens to me often! But definitely an positive because your finally able to move on knowing they don’t have the world’s best crepes!! πŸ˜€

    We must definitely take that drive down the old country road, past the peach orchard and the sheep farms, through the hill country and the very very miniscule town of Albert. Someday.

    LOVE the way you wrote this. SO much fun!

    I miss you! Time to catch up on some blogs…I’m so out of touch these days!
