CAÑONCITOS (little canons) DE DULCE DE LECHE, A CLASSIC ARGENTINE PASTRY

Today I wanted to share with you this very special and classic Argentine pastry recipe. In Argentina, there are this stores called "panaderias", that sell bread and pastries that are absolutely delicious. No offense, but I have yet to try something as yummy as the Argentine croissants or pastries in general. However, I think I came as close as I possibly can making them at home. These are called "canoncitos" because they replicate little canons (?).

It's extremely easy to make them and I encourage you to try them to taste a little bit of Argentina.

You'll need

-Puff pastry (the 2 sheet pack is good to start)
-1 can of dulce de leche La lechera (you can find this one in the Hispanic aisle of any store)
-Cooking parchment
-Confectioner's sugar to sprinkle at the end.

How to:

Unfold the thawed puff pastry sheets.

Cut 1 inch stripes along the width of the sheet and then roll each stripe around the parchment paper previously shaped like a stick like I show in the picture. Do three rolls and then roll the stripe on itself three more times.


Bake on 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until you see it golden on the surface.

Once out and cooled, twist the pastry and the paper gently so they come off easily.

Place the dulce de leche inside a cooking sleeve (decorative bag?) or you can also use a ziplic bag and squeeze the dulce de leche inside the canon to fill it in. When you're done with all of them, sprinkle the sugar on top. Enjoy!
