Hojaldras are another Christmas holiday specialty. Nowadays you can buy them in supermarkets ready to fry, but I believe that they are so easy to make it’d be a shame not to prepare them myself. They are really worthwhile. I prepared these with my daughter Isabella at her great aunt Isabelita’s house in Santa Fé de Bogotá, and I think we ate half of the platter. They are crunchy, tender, and flaky, sweet and light, and you can’t get enough of them.
