The start of November marks the triumphant return of Momofuku Milk Bar's Thanksgiving croissant. This magical pastry has been around since 2011, and is only available November 1st to the day before Thanksgiving (they're closed on the actual holiday). The thing is filled with all of your favorite holiday flavors: turkey, cranberry, stuffing, and gravy.
The Thanksgiving croissant is made with a yeast dough that is folded with stuffing spiced butter (celery salt, pepper, and thyme) to make the croissant dough. When rolling the croissant dough up, it is filled with cranberry sauce, roasted turkey (light AND dark meat), and gravy.
Milk Bar makes about 300 each day and is available at all 5 New York City locations. One of these things costs $4.50 and they usually run out in the early evening.
