Galletas Cubanas- Cuban Crackers

February 25, 2013 - 4:37pm -- hansent

Hello to the Cuban food fans:

I am missing my galletas cubanas and am wondering if any of the Miami folks who figured out the Cuban bread recipes might have a recipe for theses buttery, white oval concave crackers which have a powdery texture?  I wait in Boise, ID for your answers  with my cream cheese and guava paste ready for spreading :)

Cuban Bread

April 12, 2007 - 2:12am -- randyw41

Hi Group, I'm new here, and for 10 years I've been trying to make authentic Cuban Bread. I've tried James Beards recipe, and countless others as well, but to no avail. To enlighten you on this wonderful bread, I've been told that the water in Tampa Florida, where every Tampa bakery makes 1000s of loaves on a daily basis, is different from the water everywhere else. I find this questionable, as I've had Cuban Bread in Miami Florida, which was pretty much the same as in Tampa, so I think the water theory is a load of bunk.
