King for a day!

February 2nd is the Catholic holiday of Candlemas. In France, they make Galette Des Rois, which is kind of like a King Cake, only more like pie. Often something is hidden inside, a baby, a bean or maybe the safest version – an almond. Today as part of our ongoing National Pie Month Celebration, the pie is Galette Des Rois, a buttery crust filled with almond cream. If you find a whole almond in your slice, you get a crown!
