bear claw definition and meaning

What is "bear claw"?

Bear claws are a type of pastry that are popular in many bakeries and cafes. They are typically made from a yeast-based dough that is rolled out and filled with a sweet almond paste or marzipan. The dough is then folded over the filling and formed into a shape that resembles a bear's paw, with three or four long, curved claws. The pastry is often topped with sliced almonds and a dusting of powdered sugar, which gives it a crunchy texture and a sweet, nutty flavor. Bear claws are a delicious and indulgent treat that are perfect for breakfast or as a midday snack. They are often served alongside coffee or tea and can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.
