Andre’s Hungarian, Midtown
Walking home today, I passed a new bakery — well, at least it was new to me. As soon as I spotted the words “Hungarian Strudels & Pastries” across the street from me, I already had instinctively stepped off the sidewalk and started walking toward this promising little spot.
The NYC outpost of a Forest Hills operation, Andre’s bakery looked very legit to me and had a variety of strudels as well as other traditional pastries like rugelach and linzer tarts. But this blog, of course, is about rainbow cookies, and I was pleased to see that they had them.
I couldn’t make it more than a few paces out the door before I took a bite of the cookie, and I loved it! It was similar to Moishe’s — a moist, chewy cookie — but not overly dense and marzipan-y like the German type. I went back the next day to try it again and see if my mind was just playing tricks on me. But no, it was just as delicious as I thought — and just a short walk from my apartment!
