Piedras

Ingredients for 12 Piedras/Stones

4 1/2 cup (500 grams) plain bread crumbs, made out after processing your bread in the food processor or blender

1 3/4 cup (250 grams) All purpose flour

1/2 cup (100 grams) sugar

100 grams margarine

1 ½ tsp. baking powder

1 ½ tsp. baking soda

1 ½ cup whole milk (add slowly)

Flour as needed to work the dough

Sugar to decorate the topping

NOTES:

If using sweet breads reduce the amount of sugar to 4 Tablespoons. The same applies to milk, reduce the amount to 1 cup. Since sweet breads tend to be on the moist side. Just add the milk little by little.

Making the bread crumbs

After a few days of buying the bread and when it starts to look sad, I usually cut it in cubes and freeze it in a plastic bag to be used for bread crumbs, croutons, bread pudding and the like. When it is just sweet breads like challah, croissants, or biscuits they are frozen in a separate bag from the plain or salty bread. In this case the one in the pictures is day old sweet breads.

The bread crumbs are placed in the food processor and processed until they become fine crumbs.

1. Preheat your oven at 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then add the margarine and knead. Gradually mix in the milk until you form a smooth dough.

2. Knead the dough until it is soft. If the dough seems hard add more milk. The dough should resemble cookie dough.

3. Using a 2 1/3 inch ice cream scoop place the dough in your greased baking sheet. Arrange them one inch apart. Sprinkle with sugar and bake until the bread is golden at edges but firm, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely.

(The Mexican bakery near me adds anise seeds to the dough and also lightly frosts the top with a chocolate ganache.)
