Quince cookies or Galletas Rellenas de Membrillo, are a favorite Mediterranean dessert. Simple yet effective, these tasty little sweets consist of nothing but simple butter cookies and quince paste. Sometimes sandwiched between two cookies, other times simply dolloped into their center, this luxurious combination of rich butter and delightful fruity quince will have you reaching for seconds!
Quinces are highly regarded and utilized often in Spanish cuisine. Membrillo is often eaten on its own or combined with another Spanish favorite, Manchego cheese. Sweet yet not overpowering, its flavor pairs beautifully with sweet and savory items alike. Though enjoyed in many ways, the simple butter cookie might just be the best vehicle for delivering the delicious taste of Membrillo. The perfect addition to any afternoon tea, or a sweet accompaniment to your morning cup of coffee, try these gourmet cookies by Casa de Alba for a taste of traditional Spanish cuisine.
