The Cronut (and other Dominique Ansel creations)
Arguably one of the first Instagram-darling desserts (and so trendy that even Dunkin' Donuts eventually debuted their own version), the cronut was created by Dominique Ansel, and is still a favorite at his bakery. Not content to rest on his laurels, the pastry chef has also popularized the chocolate chip cookie shot and frozen s'mores since then. Don't miss his kouign-amann either.
