Peanut no they are not they are a flat crisp. Very yummy. The little lady I got them from said the name means sweet biscuit. Nothing like wedding cookies. Hope you like them.

Question


Thx for all these recipes,
avacados are a favorite.
Couldnt believe how expensive those trees were. Saturday @ the fruit tree sale, avacados were the most expensive tree on the list @ 125.00, for either 10 or 15gl size.

I hope to find one thru a PS trade, if anyone has one pls know via pm if your willing to trade.
I hear the mexican ones are eaiser to establish fruit, if grown from seed.
I Will keep searches, as that price range is out of my league.
I will continue to try to root my seeds as I eat an avacado, who knows I might be able to get one to sprout, even if it takes a while.

Anyone else growing avacado?
Is so, how often have you gotten fruit?

Thanks Peanut for the recipe!! I will definitely try it...Spanish food is one of our family's favorites! We got spoiled when we lived in CT...amazing authentic Spanish food could be founf around every corner! I actually made Spanish potato balls as part of supper tonight (papas rellenas). Very yummy!! Here is the recipe...

Another dish we love are canoas...plantains stuffed with fried hamburger, adobo, and cheese. I tried looking for a good recipe, but none struck me as truly authentic. Do you have one, Peanut?
Cathy, I got an avocado pit to try to do a project with the kids, but until I researched how to grow it, I didn't realize it takes 10-15 years for a new tree to bear fruit! That is a LONG time! Unless you are willing to pay for an older tree, the market is your best bet at getting avocados that I know of. Good luck!

Loving the recipes.

Bzmom5, thanks for the Black Bean Dip recipe. My sister loves it when I make a seven layer dip and use it on the bottom instead of refried beans.
Also. Is your avatar a photo from your home? Absolutely beautiful.
Thanks again,
RC

*PAN DULCE* (mexican sweet bread)
conchas (looks like a seashell)

1 packet dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoon veg shortening
1 teaspoon salt
3 1\2 cups flour
4 eggs beaten,room temp

-topping-
1/2 cup veg shortening
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1cup flour
3 teaspoons vanilla
optional food coloring
(usually come in pink,yellow, or a chocolate color)
*************************************************
mix tablespoon of sugar with yeast packet in a small bowl, add lukewarm water, let rest for 10mins.
in a large bowl cream shortening and sugar, slowly add eggs,salt and yeast mixture. add flour 1 cup at a time until well incorporated. cover and let rise in a warm place for 45mins.
divide dough into 16 pieces shape into balls. place on lighly greased baking pan with plenty of space inbetween balls. press each ball to slightly flatten.let dough rise for an hour.
--------------------------------
for the topping
mix all ingredients in a food processer until smooth (this is the easiest way to get it all mixed )
with your hand divide topping into 16 pieces roll into balls, place on a floured surface roll out eat ball until its large enough to cover piece of dough.
lightly press topping unto dough. use a knife to cut a pattern into the topping dont cut into the dough itself, if you dont wanna make your own pattern the topping will crack while cooking making its own pattern
bake at 350 for about 15 mins or until golden brown....

my grandma would get up at the crack of dawn to make these yummy treats for us her and her friend named lady would make these and fresh flour tortillas all day....it would makw the house smell so yummy!!
this bread has no preservatives so they dont keep long....
sooo soo yummy!

Peanut,
You cocinero gourmet nina,
What a wonderful recipe. That Carnitas is so good. Made it last night for dinner and I love it and looking forward to it in a bun (kinda pulled pork sandwich).
Thanks so much,
RC

If anyone has some papalo seeds around to share, I have been trying to track some down. I would love to share other herb seeds or whatever i have.

Another great Latin herb is epazote. I hope to get my epazote pot to seed, or I may be able to try and do a cutting or some seedlings some time. I got some nearly-dead epazote i have spent months bringing back to life. It is so much better fresh than dried for those that like this herb.
