When at home some don’t like almonds and hazelnuts or pistachio, it can be a bit tricky at epiphany as the traditional French galette des rois are filled with almond cream or frangipane (frangipane is a mix of almond cream and pastry cream).
So as one of my daughters is completely crazy about lemon, this year I decided to garnish my galette des rois with lemon. The filling is made with lemon curd with nice acidity, without butter but with a little bit of cornstarch to thicken, combined with pastry cream. A gorgeous twist. Smooth and flavorful. Perfect for garnishing puff pastry.
