“Quesito” Pancakes

WP_20141115_002                                                                          “Quesito” is a typical desert in Puerto Rico. It consist of a puff pastry filled with creamy cream cheese and topped with a glaze of honey and sugar. I have done quesitos in my house with my family and then ate them, shared them, brought them to a party o family meeting, or sold them at work or school. Quesitos is my favorite dessert. Although I do not eat cheese, I cannot resisted. You can finf quesitos in any bakery in Puerto Rico and some restaurants like El Mesón Sanwiches or Starbucks (http://store.starbucks.com/starbucks-puerto-rico/011018249,default,pd.html).

They were smooth, the mixture of the quesito was creamy, cheesy and everything was sweet. You would ask yourself why I made this pancakes if a do not eat cheese. Well, my friends, I made them with a vegetarian cream cheese. I bought it on Freshmart for this purpose. WP_20141116_010

I mixed the cream cheese with greek yogurt (always use greek!) and vainilla. Then, I mashed it with a fork until creamy.


I opened carefully a pancake, thinly with a knife and add the misture and then closed it. These pancakes are full of this delicious mixture.

So after eating this pancakes you can have an idea of what a quesito is like.WP_20141116_009 WP_20141116_008
