Sexta Quedada – Baking Panellets

This time we decided to bake traditional Catalan treats, Panellets. It’s common to bake them at the time of the all Hallows eve.

For the Panellets you need

  • smoothly crushed almonds
  • baked potato
  • sugar
  • for decoration:
    • almonds
    • coconut flakes

The dough is easy to make, you just need to put the same amount of all the three ingredients.

First, you’ll have to mix sugar and the crushed almonds. After that you can add the mashed potato.

  Then you can mix the dough with your hands.

We noticed that the dough had to stay in the fridge a bit before we were able to make small balls from them. So when the dough is firm enough, you can make small balls and decorate them with almonds and coconut flakes. In the traditional ones you have only one almond on top.

You can also mix some cocoa powder to the dough to make some chocolate panellets.

Bake the panellets in 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

They taste delicious!
