I'm sorry. Sincerely, sorry.
I know I made a commitment to post sweet treats on Sundays, but, well ....
As I stated in my previous post, the Sunday before the Superbowl, I was sick. I promise; I was. Then last Sunday, I was going to redeem myself with a fabulous dessert .. Kouign Amann. It's French and there were a lot of steps involved.
I'm totally addicted to David Lebovitz. Don't ask me why because I don't know. There are certain blogs that just hit me .. ya follow? Anyway, it was his beautifully photographed Kouign Amann, I was committed to making. Come Sunday, I was ready. One problem though, I couldn't get David's site to come up. I don't know if it was him or me, but I couldn't connect. I tried to the point that I was having serious words with the BPL (big pink laptop). Disappointed, I moved on.
Loosely translated Kouign Amann means Butter Cake, so I looked up French Butter Cake recipes. I finally settled on one that actually read like a cake recipe and not like bread. If it wasn't DL's recipe, I wanted something different. Yes, I'm a bit stubborn that way.
It smelled heavenly baking and it tasted good. Sweet, but not too sweet. But the texture was that of "not quite done" shortbread (and I baked it for an hour and a half). it was a bit heavy and crumbly, and I was just not happy about it.
So I opted not to write about it.
I'm making cookies this weekend in honor of Valentine's Day.
I hope you'll come back and visit.
