This is a very tasty recipe from the AllRecipes Mexico site - they are kind of like dense lightly sweet biscuits or english muffins. My son really liked these - he ate half of the recipe less than 24 hours after I made them! I was able to cook these up in 2 batches in my cast iron - about 5 minutes per side was about right to get a lightly browned outer surface, cooked through in the middle, and with a really nice chewy texture. These are great as an anytime treat / snack, or with some coffee or tea. My son loved these plain, and I thought they were very tasty by themselves but they would also be good with some honey or jam.
The translation of the name totally cracked me up - that's why I picked these in the first place and I'm so glad we gave these a try! Kent has already asked me to make these again.
Gorditas dulces de harina de trigo by Nydia Parra on AllRecipes
4 cups flour
1/2 cup butter (or margarine)
scant 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1/4 tsp salt
- Warm the milk in saucepan over medium heat, do not boil.
- Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy and then gradually stir in flour and salt, alternating with the warm milk until a workable dough is formed.
- Roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick, cut into small rounds. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium to medium-high heat and cook until browned on both sides and the dough is cooked through in the middle (about 5 minutes per side).
