Tarta De Santiago

Sweet almonds and zesty Seville oranges are combined into a moist sponge that tastes divine. We like to serve a thick slice of this tart with a large cup of coffee.



Stop laughing. Yes, you were! This is the name given to cigar-shaped bread that is soft and a little similar to a croissant (yep, French again). It is normally served as a dipping accompaniment to horchata, which is a milky rice-based drink.



These pine nut cookies are sweet, chewy, and a little bit crunchy. There is so much going on within each little ball of flavor. Sweet sugar, cocoa powder, coconuts, and perhaps even a juicy chunk of cherry or two?

So there we have it. A list of traditional Spanish desserts (and a few ‘stolen’ French ones). Some you’ll know, and some you won’t. Which ones were your favorite? They are all super sweet and really delicious.
