In Spain recently to celebrate Halloween. The tradition here is the "Día de Todos los Santos". A day to spend with family and remembering those no longer with us. The typical sweet of this day are the "buñuelos" and the "Huesos de santo". These are my favorites. A kind of marzipan egg yolk filling. Looking in my baking books I found the recipe for this sweet in the "Enciclopedia de Confiteria y Reposteria de la Marquesa de Parabene (Espasa)". An old book reissued that I love because it keeps the speech, expressions and how to cook years ago. In fact, the explanations are not entirely useful because it applies ancient techniques and is not very clear about cooking times, but I love his illustrations and language. You could say it is a vintage cookbook. One way to peek into the past.
This year I have encouraged myself to the Huesos de santo but for the next year, knowing I have the recipe ... Or, who knows, any day you need something sweet [*]
