Conchas are made with an enriched, airy dough and topped with a crunchy layer, creating a subtly sweet treat that’s equally perfect for breakfast or dessert!
Typically conchas are flavored naturally. These conchas incorporate freeze-dried strawberries to give them a beautiful pink hue and a delicious flavor. You and your family will love nibbling on one for a snack or breakfast!
Conchas, which means “shell” in Spanish, are so named because of the decorative, crunchy layer sitting atop their light and airy bottom sweet bread layer.
They are so satisfying to bite into. With that crunchy topping and that bright pop of strawberry followed by the buttery soft, slightly sweet bread. So good!
The topping is almost like a crunchy cookie prepared with butter, powdered sugar, a bit of flour, vanilla, salt, an egg yolk and baking powder.
