Pays de Saint-Malo craquelin
Originally made by accident by an apprentice baker who forgot to add the butter to the heated pastry, the craquelin’s characteristic bowl shape has remained unchanged since the 17th century.
Craquelins make a sweet or savoury snack, and nowadays they are one of Saint-Malo’s most popular specialities!
