I love these sticks!!! These spanish puff pastry sticks have a wonderful flavor and divine texture. First time I tried these sticks from my colleague while I was still in Spain. After I used to buy them at the stores in Spain. Of course, I surely wanted to try to bake them by myself, because in Lithuania you can not buy that kind of sticks anywhere… And I haven’t seen these in USA neither, unfortunately.
The biggest advice before baking these unreal flavor sticks – BE SURE to use a BUTERRY puff pastry, otherwise, if you bake from a simple puff pastry – the sticks will be just too dry and will not have an authentic taste.
And make sure you will add a lot of confectioner’s sugar – in Spain, these sticks are fully covered with confectioner’s sugar. While eating these sticks everything falls on your knees or on the table, but it doesn’t matter since you feel the most amazing taste in your mouth.
In Spanish these sticks are called “Lazos de Hojaldre“, translated would be puff pastry ribbons. Although they remind me more just sticks… Well, there is no difference what kind of shape they have, the most important thing is what kind of taste they have. And I assure you, that the taste, for many of you, may be still never tasted before.
