This was my first attempt at making semita de piña, a pastry common in my birthplace of El Salvador. I’ll be honest here. It looks much better than it tastes, but as we say in Spanish: “se deja comer.” I did however, thoroughly enjoy the process-from making the fresh pineapple jelly to kneading the dough to assembling the semita-all the while listening to great music on Pandora and dancing. I could just imagine hearing my mother in the background, “Quedate quieta Magaly!” Sorry mami, but dancing is my thing!
I have to get some rest now. I have big day at the Urban Garden Center. It’s Agricultural Day! Happy Friday my friends!
