A classic Chilean Dobladitas.
This bread is made with the same dough as Empanadas but folded and baked without filling them. They are rich, bread without a crumb; if you like fluffy bread, I suggest adding baking powder.
The next day, if they are leftover, wrap the Dobladitas in a wet kitchen cloth and heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds at maximum power. They will taste like freshly baked bread.
