I saw this and my mouth started watering.  The Apple Pie Croissant looks delish!!  Check out this press release from Nathaniel Reid Bakery:

Fall is officially in the air, and Nathaniel Reid Bakery (11243 Manchester Rd, St. Louis, MO) announces autumnal treats to celebrate the best flavors of the season. Chef/owner Nathaniel Reid incorporates fall produce and warming spices into his classic French pastries for crave-worthy items such as: the gourmet Apple Pie Croissant, aptly shaped like apple; Croissant Bread Pudding with house made caramel sauce; Chocolate Pumpkins; and more.

“Fall kicks off our busiest season of the year,” shares Chef Reid. “Our customers look forward to quintessential autumn flavors on the menu, and our team spends a lot of time perfecting these recipes.”

In tune with the seasonal love for pumpkin-spiced everything, the bakery offers a Spiced Pumpkin Pound Cake ($12) version of his beloved recipe with apple cider icing and candied pecans. The Apple Pie Croissant ($3.50) takes Chef Reid’s celebrated croissant recipe (which takes four days to make) and tops the apple-shaped pastry with apples roasted with fall spices and apple pie crumble. For an elegant take beyond the standard Halloween chocolates, Reid also offers hand-painted Milk Chocolate Pumpkins ($18) with Valrhona milk chocolate. Other seasonal offerings include Gingersnap Cookies, Croissant Bread Pudding ($16) with caramel sauce, and the rich and delicious Hot Chocolate made with a blend of dark and milk chocolate. Starting on November 1st, the Nathaniel Reid Bakery team will start taking orders for the acclaimed Thanksgiving pies of the Chocolate Pecan Tart with chocolate Chantilly cream, the beautiful Pumpkin Pie, topped with maple-white chocolate Chantilly, and the Apple Pie with Brown Sugar Streusel.
