Classified as “Supreme Quality’’, the 1880 Artisan Almond Crumble Cakes are made with wheat flour and crunchy almonds. Soft and light when eaten, these sweet treats have a melt-in-your-mouth consistency that is like no other! This is why it is considered a staple and an essential to have these in every Spanish home.
Crumbly in texture and also when held, this is where they get their namesake from. Called mantecados in Spain, the 1880 Artisan Almond Crumble Cakes are handmade, with love, care and a lot of butter, shortening or lard; which is why they are so soft and crumbly.
Traditionally wrapped in bright and colorful paper, these were handed out to children during the Christmas season. Every member of the family would enjoy these because of their soft texture and buttery goodness. No Spanish household was ever complete without these goodies and you’ll have to try and see why!
