These scrumptious Spanish cookies filled with sweet fruit preserves are not only delicious, they also come packaged in a gorgeous special edition tin adorned with an image of the late Duchess of Alba on horseback, as painted by famed Spanish Ignacio Zuloaga.
Made using fine raw materials from the Casa de Alba’s own vast and rich estates, these cookies, called “pastas” in Spanish, are filled with flavorful jams prepared artisanally with quince (membrillo), oranges, blueberries and strawberries harvested in the estate.
Casa de Alba is a renowned Spanish royal house, one of the oldest in Spain, tied to most of the major monarchies in the world, and until recently headed by the late Cayetana, the famously flamboyant Duchess of Alba. The Estate is famed for its olive oil, sherry vinegar, craft beer, Iberico ham, artisan cheeses, and a myriad of other gourmet foods that are sourced and produced in their vast, rich lands.
Send a tin of these delicious cookies as part of a Spanish gourmet gift basket or hamper for the Spain-loving foodie in your life. Or just stock up for when you want something delicious to serve your guests after dinner with coffee, or to pair with your mid-afternoon tea or coffee.
