oh me, oh my, oh bizcochos! these pictures bring me back. back to the wonderful time i spent in uruguay serving a mission for my church. it was the most amazing experience that i'd ever had in my life. part of what made it so memorable for me, besides the things i taught and the people, was the interesting food i ate while there. and although "interesting" isn't how i would label bizcochos, "devine" is. sadly, these small and scrumptious treats are what helped my kilos increase on the scale. i gained a little under twenty pounds in my hear and a half there. but, gosh darn-it, i say it was worth it. those things are just so good!
they are basically little croissant/rolls filled with a variety of things, ranging from dulce de leche (the real stuff) to dulce de membrillo to cheese. from uruguay describes them pretty accurately and really makes me wish i could walk down to the panaderia (bakery) or bizcocheria right now and buy some!
*as a nice little p.s. to you all, here's a recipe to make your own dulce de leche. tonight!!
