Cachitos, or crescent rolls, are one of the most popular breakfast foods in Venezuela. You can find them in any bakery and they’re truly irresistible, especially if they’re fresh from the oven. As most Latin Americans living in the United States, I’m always looking for ways to make the little treats that remind us of our native countries. In my case, I find that it also needs to be easy and quick. And that’s why I thought of these easy crescents. My family loves them! I make them during the week so the kids can enjoy them for breakfast or in their school lunch. Try them! MORE + LESS -
