    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    These were made for me last Christmas by a friends mother. She made them so delicately and with such love that I was inspired to make them myself after my visit to her home. They are very addictive, and believe me when I say that you can't just eat one. I actually had about 7 while I was at her house, and my stomach was just about ready to explode by the time I left. It was worth it though because these little things are beyond good. Enjoy!

      my husband and I decided to look up the recipe for these and try making them ourselves, being that we just recently moved states away from our favorite colombian restaurants. I have to say these were great! However we will add a little more sugar next time just to make them a little more like we are used to. But they were awesome served with sweet coffee! we are definetly going to try the natilla next time too. thanks for a great recipe!
