Galette Des Rois{La Recetas De La Felicidad}

Galette des rois is a puff pastry pie filled with frangipane, a very popular French cake that celebrates the holiday of Epiphany (January 6th), the day when the Wise Men (Gaspar, Melchior and Balthasar) visited Baby Jesus. As part of French tradition, a bean or small china “fève” (favor) is hidden in the cake. Tradition has it that the youngest member of the family goes under the table to distribute the slices to the different people sitting around the table. The person who finds the lucky charm in their slice of galette des rois becomes the king (or queen) of the day. My version of the recipe with mini galettes allows everyone in the family to find a favor in their galette!
