Brunitos and snowy

Brunitos and snowy… how rich. A lot of memories of them come to mind. When I was little at Glorina’s kiosk, she sold them to five pesetas each brunette. What I liked to use the tip to buy some… because now I prepare them at home. When these dates are coming I prepare a batch and enjoy them among all but if you like them as much as I am sure you do them the rest of the year.

The recipe can not be simpler and with these amounts you will be about 30 depending on the size of the pasta cutter we use. When you finish baking you decide if you want them all to be brunette, all snowy or as I do half and half.

Stored in a can in a dry and cool place last quite so you can prepare them well in advance.
