Great Sunday!

I love our neighbors!  Yesterday our neighbor from Venezuela and I traded comfort food lessons.  She taught me to make cochito. (Excuse the spelling!) I taught her to to make buttermilk biscuits.

At her request I won't use her name or her picture, so lets call her Zelda. Zelda has shared cochitos with us several times. They are a yeast pastry stuffed with  ham, bacon and cheese. Delicious! So glad Zela shared!

The dough is rolled into a circle. Then cut into eight wedges. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling, minced ham, bacon and cheese, in the wide end of the dough wedge.  Now just roll up like a crescent roll. Glaze and bake!

The glaze was a new one to me. One egg and Mexican sugar. Zelda called it papalon ( again i hope i am spelling it right!)

Glazing this way gives the pastry a little sweetness that is great with the pork filling. Bake these

at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.  Turn half way through baking time.  This is what you get!  Yummy!
