A religieuse is a pastry made of two “choux” of choux pastry filled with custard.
A chou is placed on top of the other, then sealed to it.
“Religieuse” meaning “nun”, the top chou is supposed to represent the nun’s head and the bottom one, her body.
So it’s a Blueberry Religieuse from Dominique Ansel shop in Soho.
