Galette des Rois with Frangipane

Galette des Rois with Frangipane


Take a taste bud trip down to the French Quarters of New Orleans. Puff pastry is a pre-made dough that quickly doubles in size, is light and fluffy, and has a very basic dough taste that can be effortlessly transformed into something amazing. Almond powder gives the dough a denser consistency along with adding a sweet nutty component. Marzipan is a very distinct dessert. It has a clay-like texture and has a sour, bitter taste. Its tartness and gooey feel easily spreads along the dough while providing a sharp bite to the King Cake.
