We love Mexican Food around here. Tacos, burritos, chimis – they’re pretty regular fare for us. One year Mark even gave me Mexican Family Favorites Cook Book by Maria Teresa Bermudez for Christmas with a request I make something from it frequently. I’ve not been very good at actually using the book, so I decided to take this month’s theme to try something new.
Looking through the book I had a hard time deciding. I finally had it pinned down to trying Mexican Cheese Souffle and Pan Dulce. Unfortunately I can’t find Pimiento’s at any store around here! So the souffle was out. Pan Dulce looked perfect for a weekend snack with the kids. I have to admit though, after looking up some other Pan Dulce recipes online, I realized most have some colored top on them, while the recipe from this book does not. In fact, the recipe I used from my book tastes pretty similar to a regular sweet roll, just rolled up differently. I did make one minor change only because I didn’t have any ground anise, I’m sure the anise flavor would have given it that authentic flavor we seemed to be missing in ours.
Rolling the bread was the hardest part to figure out. Maybe it makes sense and I’m trying to make it difficult, but I tried a couple different folds. A couple we folded straight in half and pinched the edges together. Some I just rolled, like a taquito, and others I rolled more like a burrito with the ends folded in. I don’t think the folds matter, they all tasted great. I enjoyed how easy the burrito looking rolls were to hold.
