This is my Mother's. Josephine Lavin recipe, all her life she would make these for christmas growing up as a little girl in Spain. All the family love these tostadas. It reminds me of french toast. This is a family tradition,I have also shown my Granddaughters how to make them . They must eat them on Xmas morning. My friend Maria B calls me on Christmas eve to see if they are ready, i can count on that visit.I love making them it gives me joy to see everyone eating them. Most of all thanks to my mother who taught me how to make this delicious treasure!
