Galette Des Rois

FrenchDessert, HomeBaked

FB_IMG_1458315455622.jpgThis dessert is only served once a year and every child in France on the 6th January (Epiphany). To honor the Kings who traveled thousands of miles to welcome our Savi.

It was probably organized by an opportunistic pâtissier who saw the opportunity of a huge market. It is a marvelous party dessert as it is the custom to hide two little figurines in the almond cream. The ones who find them will become the King and Queen for the day and of course have all of their wishes realised.  Two crowns would be perfectly befitting the winners. It is also a remarkably simple dessert as you can buy the puff pasty and the almond cream takes just a few minutes to make. – See more at: http://www.raymondblanc.com/recipes/galette-des-rois/#.dpuf
