Recipe: The galette des rois

Recipe la galette des rois, here is a tradition that persists after the New Year. With us the youngest goes under the table and designates the shares to be distributed. Galette des rois with frangipane or galette des rois with almond cream the two schools compete for the happiness of our taste buds, personally I much prefer the galette des rois with almond cream, but the next year I promise I will make you a galette des rois with frangipane. In the galette des rois we only find good things, butter, almond powder, egg and icing sugar. 2012 souvenir recipe
