Kouign-Amann wouldn't be one of the world's greatest pastries if it also weren’t a legendary labor of love. The irresistible combination of sweet, salty, sticky, buttery, crispy, flaky, and tender is hard to beat. Experience it for yourself and try Chef John’s recipe. Start several hours ahead of time to give the dough plenty of time to rise. The rest of the recipe consists mostly of laminating the dough—basically folding layers of butter into the dough, rolling it out, and letting it chill. To get that signature sweet and savory balance, you'll season every few folds with near-equal amounts of sugar and salt. For the finale, you’ll learn how to shape the perfect crown-shaped pastries and bake them into most amazing hybrid of a croissant, a potato chip, and salted caramel sauce.
