Ooh La La!
Williams-Sonoma Croissants
"As a Francophile, I never thought you could get a good croissant stateside—until I found these. I let them rise overnight, popped them in the oven, and voilà! My kitchen smelled like a French bakery. We presented them to Oprah, and they've been on Favorite Things twice now. I take full credit."  —Jill Barancik
