Caracol de hojaldre is a type of pastry that is popular in Spain and Latin America. The name “caracol” means “snail” in Spanish, and the pastry is named after its spiral shape.
Caracoles de hojaldre are made with puff pastry dough, which is rolled out into a rectangular shape and then spread with a filling, which can vary depending on the recipe. Some common fillings include chocolate, cinnamon and sugar, or a mixture of almond paste and sugar.
Once the filling is spread over the dough, it is rolled up tightly into a spiral shape, starting from one end of the rectangle. The dough is then sliced into rounds, each of which reveals the spiral pattern of the pastry.
The caracoles de hojaldre are then baked until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, with a tender and flaky interior. They are often served as a sweet snack or dessert, and can be enjoyed on their own or with a cup of coffee or tea.
Caracoles de hojaldre are a delicious and easy-to-make pastry that are perfect for entertaining or as a treat for yourself.
