Ingredients
  1. 200 gr nata (7 oz clotted cream)
  2. 2 eggs
  3. ¾ cup (175 gr - 6 oz) sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 500 gr (17.6 oz) flour
  6. 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  8. ½ teaspoon salt
  9. ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl put the natas, whisk until they fluff up a bit. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Once well incorporated, add sugar and mix.
  2. In a medium bowl sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add to the mixture of wet ingredients gradually. Mix with a spoon until the point where it’s impossible to keep mixing with ease, now you have to incorporate the mixture with your hands until the dough is soft and smooth.
  3. Cover the dough with a plastic bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes; preferably overnight.
  4. Flour a smooth surface. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and spread on the floured surface. Knead until 1 cm (0.4 in) thick. With a round cookie cutter of 7 cm (2.75 in) in diameter, cut the dough.
  5. Place the dough in a non-stick pan over low heat (very low), give the first turn when they still look a little bit raw, this will make them rise well. When they are really puffed, turn again. (In total, you have to flip them 2 times)
Notes
  1. You can cut them in half and use as a filling one of the following: Cajeta (Mexican caramel), jam, Nutella, chocolate syrup, etc.
  2. You can substitute natas for clotted cream.
