Kouignettes, Set of 24
This luscious little dessert is the petite cousin of the kouign amann-a classic "butter cake" from pastry chef Jean Yves Charon's native Brittany. Each combines layers of puff pastry to create a decadent treat with a sweet, buttery center and crisp caramelized sugar coating. Handcrafted in Northern California, the kouignettes are easy to prepare-simply let them rise overnight, then bake and serve. They emerge from the oven with crunchy, sugar-speckled exteriors, tender interiors and an irresistible buttery aroma. 24 pastries (2 lb. 4 oz.). Shipped frozen. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
