The Kouign Amann is made in a fashion similar to puff pastry, with dough that bakes up in layers and caramelizes the sugar sprinkled on top. The resulting thin sheets of meltingly buttery dough have a sweet finish and basically every kind of pleasing texture. It sounds simple, but the best desserts often are.
