Les Madeleines in Salt Lake City is a gem.  You must go there and have a Kouing Aman.  Don’t even finish reading this.  Go!

Les Madeleines

A Kouing Aman is a pastry from Brittany, France and it is so so perfect.  The outside is crisp with caramelized sugar but the inside is chewy, buttery, soft and just dense enough to be satisfying.  It is one of my favorite treats, ever.

Luke and I stopped in late on a recent Saturday morning for brunch.  The weather was beautiful so we ate outside with a few other couples and dogs and watched the leaves of the trees blow.

We tried a few other things as well, a Ham and Cheese Croissant and a Passionfruit Macaron.  Both were delicious.

The only problem is now I’ve had it, I want MORE.  Thank goodness Luke works downtown and he knows I’d rather be surprised with a Kouing Aman than flowers…
