Mexican Pastry Cloths are filled with a mixture of sweet, sour and savory flavors, which is perfect for any meal, said Mary-Ann Zagat, pastry chef at The Art of Pastry Shop in Los Angeles.
For example, a pastry cloth filled with savory, sweet, and sour flavors may be served with tacos, Mexican rice bowls or just plain sandwiches.
Zagats recipes, however, are simple and straightforward.
She also offers Mexican-style pastries and cakes made with butter, sugar, and cinnamon.
Zangats favorite pastry cloth, the Pueblo Chocolate Chip Cookie, comes in a cream cheese frosting, with a butter cookie.
Zawats recipe calls for a sweet, cream cheese and butter cookie, while a sour, cream and sugar cookie would be topped with vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream.
The Chocolate Chip Cookies have a sweet and sour flavor to them, while the Butter Cookie has a sweet-savory taste, Zawat said.
The dessert cloths are made with natural ingredients, like chocolate, sugar and spices, so they can be customized to your taste.
The pastry cloths can be purchased online or through your favorite bakery.
And to top it off, Zagatos chocolate-covered cookies are made in a special machine.
Zapatos handmade cookies can be baked for up to six hours or frozen for up a day.
The artisanal pastry shop in the heart of L.A. is also one of the best in the country when it comes to making pastries for the home, said Zagattis husband, Steve, in a statement.
This pastry shop is located on Santa Monica Boulevard in Venice.
The couple opened the business in 2013 and it has grown to become one of LA’s top-rated pastry shops, with more than 400 pastry orders in 2016, according to Zagatts website.
Zatzat said the dough used for the pastries comes from their family farm in Oaxaca, Mexico.
“Our dough is organic, the water is from Oaxacan, and it’s all organic,” she said.
It is also organic, so you can expect less sugar and cream than traditional doughs, which tend to have a lot of butter.
For the pastry cloth to hold its shape, it has to be heated at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes.
The oven-heated cloth is then rolled out and cut to the desired size.
Zzagat said she has tried many recipes to make the perfect pastry cloth but “they are always too sweet.”
For example she has used chocolate chip cookies and butter cookies.
She said the pastry cloths come in two flavors: sweet and savoury.
She prefers the savouriness of the butter cookie and the sweet of the chocolate chip cookie.
She added that the chocolate-chip cookie dough can be used as a pastry for a whole variety of desserts, including pastries.
She recommends using a pastry brush to brush the pastry onto the baking sheet, which she said helps with a smooth texture.
Zatats pastries can be served warm, or chilled, to keep them fresh.
Zats chocolate-covered cookies can also be made at home, but they must be made ahead of time and frozen for about a week.
The shop sells handmade pastries at a special rate, though it may be a little pricey.
Zegats bakery is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday.
