From the ancient city of Teruel comes the famous flaky pastry - Trenza Mudejar. Fresh butter, almonds, walnuts and chocolate pieces are the reason that this delicious pastry has been a favorite for centuries. Now you can enjoy this classic pastry in your home - as a wonderful coffee cake or a delightful dessert!
Trenza means braid, referring to the overlapping pastry, and Mudejar traditionally refers to the Moorish people who remained in Spain after the Christian reconquest. Interestingly, this type of pastry probably originated in another part of Europe and was adapted by Spanish bakers, and had little to do with the Mudejar tradition.

"The bad: the plastic wrapping on the box was broken when it arrived, but the inside box and plastic window were intact so I was able to use it. The good: everyone who tasted it had favorable comments. I did not personally try it."

"Nice and flaky but not too light. Just the right amount of sweetness to serve with coffee. I could live without the chocolate chips, though. But overall a real treat."
