Mia #3's Note:
I had a Zaar member ask me for this receipe, so I decided to share it with everyone. It's a Portuguese speciality, now a days you can pretty well find it in any good bakery shop. But back in the olden days it was only made on special occasions, like Xmas or Easter.Each region would use what ever they had at hand. It has been like that ever since. I hope all of you enjoy it as much as we all do here in Portugal. I enjoy making this for our picnics.
