Argentina is home to Latin America’s largest Jewish community. Every year, 20,000 people attend Rosh Hashanah Urbano, a public celebration of the Jewish New Year on the streets of Buenos Aires’ Palermo neighborhood. This recipe is courtesy of the first Jewish settlement in Argentina, Moises Ville. Visit JDC Entwine for pictures from the most recent Inside Jewish Argentina trip. Beyond Bubbie and JDC Entwine are partnering to share recipes from communities served by the JDC around the world.
1 cup(s) sugar
1 cup(s) Honey
1 cup(s) oil
1.5 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Ground cloves
As much as it takes flour
Combine the ingredients into compact dough. Grease and flour a medium-size rectangular baking sheet. Divide dough in three parts; take 1 with oiled hands and place on sheet.
Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon, cover with a layer of quince jelly diluted with some other jam or jelly (e.g., orange, lemon, peach, or plum). Repeat this step twice with the two remaining parts of dough, layering them. Finally, oil the top and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon.
Bake approximately 50 minutes in moderate to hot oven.
