Pan Dulce is a Mexican morning sweet bread with a wonderful taste and texture. My mom makes this treat around Easter time and it's one of my favorites. I always eat the topping off of the bread first before enjoying the second half.
The bread is slightly sweet and the topping is a crunchy, cookie-like confection. Usually shaped into a seashell pattern, I used cookie cutters to make the untraditional toppers for my first attempt at pan dulce. I will definitely try this again, next time with cocoa topping instead of pink-vanilla.
