Here is my first attempt, over 5 years ago.

IMO, baking with laminated dough is the highest expression of the art. This decadent pastry from Breton - essentially croissant dough with a sweet, salty, caramelized glaze - has the highest ratio of butter than anything I bake.

Hans,

Kouign-Amann are quite labour intensive but worth the effort.  You can't go wrong with anything from Bruno Albouze:

BTW, your stollen looks  :drool:

Tomorrow we are having 2 of the 3 delectables pictured above but I did not make either of them. My brother just brought us one of his stollens. My son ordered kouign amann from a local baker. I first saw those made on the McNeely’s show on TFN.


Beautiful work Hans and Bill. Can you imagine if this forum had a bake sale?? Could fund a couple new schools!

Kolach is a family tradition at Christmas time. It is sometimes called nut roll. The sides of them burst this time and not sure why. But they sure are delicious and reminds me of going to my grandmother’s house.

Rolls,

Thanks for posting the Bruno link. I really like the look of his second shaping method of cross-cutting rolled dough. I try it out on a batch I'll bake tomorrow. I don't have rings the size he uses. Maybe English muffin rings (slightly larger) will do.

You could also try a muffin pan in order to get more height.

I don't like a muffin pan for this pastry. Moisture gets trapped and prevents the bottom from getting as crispy as I like.

I made these yesterday.  Wasn't going to post them because they were a complete train wreck.  I tried to make my own candy fork which worked not at all.  Couldn't find the toothpicks so I had to use a skewer that was about 3 times the diameter and left rather large holes.  Tasted ok.

Sourdough kouign amann, cross-cut, English muffin rings. Baked on Silpat; not as crispy on the bottom as I would have liked. Next time on parchment or bare metal. But I do like this shaping better than the traditional "dumpling" fold. Also, next time I'll try regular butter rather than the extra-creamy one just to see if it really matters.

I dod not make any of these but enjoyed them all. My brother made the first two and my son bought the last one from someone he knows with a home bakery license.

Spicy pecan brittle.  This one has chipotle powder, the other has double Hatch hot green...so good.
Really chaps my hide, and my tongue, since I have slowly developed sensitivity to most tree nuts  >:(

They look fine from here despite the split. I think I prefer the poppy seed one though. The nut roll is usually too sweet for me. The kalacs is definitely a holiday treat.

I reduce the sugar from the original recipe so is not overly sweet.
