How To Make Kouign-Amann
Dissolve yeast in warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in 1 cup of chilled butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the yeast mixture to the bowl and mix until a dough forms. Knead the dough for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Shape the dough into a ball and let it rest in a greased bowl for 1 hour, covered with a kitchen towel, until it doubles in size.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle. Spread the remaining 1/4 cup of chilled butter on the surface of the dough.
Sprinkle the sugar evenly over the butter. Fold the dough in thirds, like a letter.
Repeat the rolling, buttering, sugaring, and folding process two more times.
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a muffin tin.
Cut the dough into 12 equal squares and place each square into the greased muffin tin, with the sugar side facing up.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and caramelized.
Remove from the oven and let the Kouign-Amann cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
