English translation:Clarified Butter (Dough) Skin(s)
Explanation:
This is mostly related to Butter.
In Japanese, 醍醐 is 'daigo'. I think it can be translated to mean "Rich Butter", or "clarified butter", "butter oil" or "essential oil of butter".

It is often referred to as "Ghee", an Indian varient.
