Still a Few Kouign Amann Left at Patisserie Philippe

Thanks to cyssf's initiative and persuasive powers, Patisserie Philippe baked a batch of kouign amann today! I just collected my share, after sampling a piece, and it was a buttery delight--crisp and caramelized exterior, richly buttery interior. I think I might have to go back to France to find better one. (No, I am not attempting it--too busy slaving over those benighted canelés.)

It's not a fancy cake--don't expect anything pretty or impressive looking, just a buttery, not-too-sweet cousin to a croissant. (Sorry for repeating "buttery" so often, but it is the raison d'être of the cake.)
