There is something magical about having pan dulce at the holiday table. It is ideal to share with the family; it makes my coffee or champurrado taste better and somehow the conversation a little more meaningful. Maybe I’m just a sentimental fool but there really is something extraordinary about those strangely shaped breads that bring people closer.
Being the food explorer that I am, I sometimes make mine with rose water. It adds a natural sweetness to the already sugary taste and nobody expects it. But I only make them like this at Christmas time. For some reason, it has become a tradition for my household. They're pretty wonderful. Try them and see if you agree!
