Sometimes you can’t decide between one pastry or another. Sometimes, you just want to be gluttonous and eat more than one. Whatever your motivation, there’s a growing family of hybrid pastries that make their singular counterparts look simple and plain in comparison. From the Cronut in New York City to the Doughscuit of the Midwest to the Cruffin in Los Angeles, the hybrid pastry trend has captured the attention of eaters across the country. These six pastries are so tempting, people are willing to line up for hours just for a taste (and the requisite Instagram pic). See for yourself if they live up to the hype!
