Ok, Dariole surprised me for it's originality, just line a mold with puff pastry, fill it with almond cream and bake until it's golden brown, genius.

Kouign amann

The lovely Bretons brings us this interesting cake, layers of dough sugar and butter create some sort of combination between a cake and puff pastry.

Kouign means cake, and  amann means butter,  and with Kouign amann you get that in a delicious package.

Untitled from gadl

 Pain d'épices is a sweet spice bread or cake if you will, a lot like gingerbread.

The basic ingredients are rye flour or whole wheat, honey, and spices newer versions use ginger too.
