leche

Mexican grocery stores have lots of pastry. Which I love. I like conchas a lot, and have been aprovechando them for a while.

Recently, now that I changed neighborhoods and have a new supermarket with slightly higher-end pastries, I have discovered a variation on my old South favorite the cinnamon roll: the tres leches cinnamon roll.

Tres leches means it has three milks, evaporated, sweetened condensed, and heavy cream. The tres leches cinnamon roll is solid enough to be portable, but after you work on it for minute or two, you start to notice milk seeping out onto your plate and hands. It basically rules.

I am savoring it with decaf Nescafé currently. (Cutting back caffeine to curb apparent dopamine deficiency.)
