Enjoy the distinctive flavor of piloncillo in these delicious piloncillo empanadas. For those who don’t know what piloncillo is, it is unrefined sugar (unprocessed), sold in the shape of cones, and it has an intense molasses flavor. Piloncillo is a basic ingredient in Mexican cooking, used to sweeten atole, pudding, and candied pumpkin. But, you can also use it as a filling for empanadas. When baked, piloncillo melts and turns into a soft and sweet filling which goes perfect with a cup of coffee.
