Questions & Replies

  1. Is it possible to freeze it before baking?


  1. I was tempted to add to this %u201Cpastilla%u201D recipe some salt, but finally I decided to follow the recipe. However I belive that this would be with half teaspoon salt good too. It came out very good, I did not miss the salt.<br/>I hat only spring rolls sheets (the frozen wheat flour ones) so I used them overlapping one to the other. For this reason the top of my pastille is not %u201Cflat%u201D as it should be, but pretty and good too.<br/>Finally it came out perfect and everybody like it. Easy recipe!<br/>Served with oven cauliflower (Recipe #277886) and green salad.
