Hojaldre puff pastry by Hojalmar is a traditional, light, flaky pastry with a toasted sugar glaze. In Argentina it is served much like cookies or other pastry - with a cup of coffee or milk as a sweet treat. These hojaldres are very light and crispy, made from a classic Argentinean recipe.
Hojaldre comes from the Arabic tradition of folding thin layers of dough with thin layers of oil between each. The most famous example is phyllo pastries. Tradition has it that the Moors in Spain introduced a version made with olive oil, which eventually was adapted by Europeans to include butter or other animal fat. The croissant is another example of an hojaldre-like pastry, though it is not as crispy as this style.
Europeans of Italian and German descent introduced this delicious tradition to Argentina, where it is a favorite of children and adults alike. Serve with tea or coffee, or as a dessert.
