I went to Argentina today. To a little pastry shop. I had empanadas de espinaca, and empanadas de humita (maiz). For dessert una palmera. I actually brought another one home to eat, in about 5 minutes, with mi cafecito.
I love to sit in this shop and hear the "jh jh jh"s of the Argentine patrons. Screaming at each other is their "inside voice".
It's overwhelming to walk in a see all the pastries and goodies. Please forgive the photos. I was hungry and didn't want to spend too much looking at the food!
Mi palmerita es deliciosa. The way it should be made - crunchy from the sugar and the crisp cookie. Buttery flavor mixing with the carmelized sugar, light and airy. Mmmmm...
