Amandine is a word that makes our mouths water... and a sweet many people simply cannot resist! This specialty of St. Croix is made at the bakery/confectionery La Gourmandine, by Reynald Jaccard and his team. They are the guardians of the secret that has turned Amandine into a unique pastry. This gentle blend of honey, cream, sugar and almonds spread on a sweet dough can be kept at room temperature. It is easily transported and a delight to eat... What more could you ask for? Amandine, your hold on us is sweet...
