    Miss Oregon's Note:

    A great Peruvian desert that I love and miss. If you wet your hands in salted water frequently--it makes the dough more manageable:)

      How very interesting. I've never had anything Peruvian before, and am glad this was what I started with. It seems like an awful lot of ingredients, but nothing stuck out as too over-riding. I did love the anise in this. I don't know how often I will make this, but I will make again. Went very well with out Mexican menu. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Miss Oregon. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted! http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
