Brighten any day with these sunny lemon pastries from San Francisco's legendary Le Marais Bakery. An unforgettable dessert or brunch treat, these luxurious pastries are a delectable riff on the classic French kouign amann – a Breton specialty whose name means "butter cake." They're handcrafted from layers of sweet, buttery viennoiserie dough that bake into crisp, flaky, golden cakes resembling a deliciously caramelized croissant. Inside, you'll find a rich, creamy filling that blends sweet vanilla buttercream with a tangy Meyer lemon jam. As easy to prepare as they are delicious, the pastries arrive frozen, ready to bake and serve warm from the oven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbug from Fantastic lemon flavor & easy to make I ordered these last month & made half the day after they arrived. Instructions were very easy & the taste was bright and buttery. What a delight for my guests. We immediately ordered more the next day. Very happy with my purchase.Date published: 2019-03-09
I thawed & baked these according to directions and found them to be doughy on the bottom and dry on the top.. Can you tell me what i did wrong? Do they have to be thawed in a cupcake tin? maybe there is an easier way..Hi AuntMelody, Yes, you have to put these in a muffin tin. Here are the instructions from the use and care section on the product page. Please let us know if the instructions you received with your order did not match what's below: • Place kouign amann in buttered cups of standard muffin pan and defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Gently push into cups before baking. Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix one egg with one teaspoon of water and lightly brush egg wash over pastries. Place muffin pan on a rimmed baking sheet in case of overflow. Bake for 20–25 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool and serve warm or at room temperature.Date published: 2019-04-27
