What’s your favorite Cuban Dessert?
Please don’t start your answer to this question with “it depends.” I can’t handle: “it depends.”
I want the answer to be quick, clean, and uncomplicated.
Someone asks you: “What’s your favorite Cuban dessert?” I want you to have the answer handily on the tip of your tongue. I want you to know your mind on this subject. You’re Cuban, therefore you know EVERYTHING. So, what’s your favorite Cuban dessert?
Go ahead. Ask me.
“Marta, what’s your favorite Cuban dessert?”
I break out into a cold sweat.
Do you mean like when I was growing up? Or after dinner? Yes, but after which particular meal? In the morning with coffee, like for breakfast? That might be the easiest.
Wait. I think all that was me saying, “it depends.” *sigh*
Fine. I surrender to my appalling lack of commitment in this that should, arguably, be an area where I unquestionably know my mind.
Let’s start again then, shall we?
After picadillo, I want cascos de guayaba con queso crema. (guava and cream cheese)
Arroz con pollo demands to be followed by flan. (Duh.)
A pastelito de guayaba (maybe 2) would be my first choice for an eye opener first thing in the morning with espresso. Wait. Can I change that? I might want a cheese roll or a coconut pastry.
Oh WHY is this so difficult?
Also, there should be prizes for all this grueling brain work.
