Pan de Leche




Warm the milk with the sugar and butter.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, eggs, vanilla extract, and orange water. Finally incorporate the butter mixture.

Knead for 10 minutes until a soft, smooth and elastic dough is formed.

Transfer the dough to a floured bowl ; cover with a towel, and set in a warm place to rise for two hours, until doubled in size.

Divide the dough into 30/40gr pieces. Shape them into balls, and gently flatten them with the palm of your hand. Place on lined baking tray.

Let rise for 30 minutes. Pre- heat oven 180°C. Brush the top of each bun with the eggwash.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until the top is golden brown.

Cool on a rack. With a sharp little kniffe cut a triangle shape on top of each bun (we just opened them and filled).

Fill with dulce de leche (using a spoon, or pastry bag). Sprinkle with sugar.
