Expert Tips

When the mojicones are baking, you can remove them from the oven after 10 minutes to brush them with egg yolk and sprinkle with sugar and then put them back in the oven until they brown.

In Colombia, like in many other Latin American Countries, it's common to find a bakery in nearly every neighborhood. These bakeries tend to have loyal clients that are familiar with the baking schedules of their favorite treats. I remember that my sister and I would usually frequent a bakery where they prepare "the best mojicones in the city," around 4 o'clock when the first batch was prepared. Mojicones are sweet bread with powdered sugar that can be prepared with different fillings, but usually, they vary. They can be made with cheese, like a sandwich or with cheese and arequipe. Though I like them all, I prefer the cheese kind. Here is my recipe for Colombian mojicones.

Directions

  • 1 Dissolve the yeast with 3 tablespoons of room temperature or warm water and 1 tablespoon of sugar in a container. Let sit for about 3 hours until it begins to rise.
  • 2 Separately, mix the rest of the ingredients and knead over a floured surface to (to prevent it from sticking), adding flour constantly because the mixture tends to be sticky. When the ingredients are well incorporated, combine with the yeast. Place the dough in a container and cover with aluminum foil and wait for the dough to grow in size. Once this time has passed, create balls of dough the size of a golf ball and place the balls on a greased baking tray.
  • 3 Brush whipped egg onto each ball and sprinkle with sugar.
  • 4 Bake for 20 minutes or until they start to brown.
