My mom used to make these every year with her Spanish class students. We LOVE them! Kind of a mexican version of elephant ears, but different. VERY addicting! This makes a lot, so you may want to cut the recipe in half. We never had any trouble eating a whole batch when we were kids, though! These look really nice served in a linen-lined rustic basket if making rounds, or if making flat ropes, stood up in a mexican pot or vase.
