I love sweet crunchy treats, especially if they are easy to put together and taste amazing. In Chile, this kind of pastry is very popular. I grew up eating them. I don’t remember doing it at home… but maybe I’m wrong.
I left you a video, but keep in mind that the size of the phyllo dough that I used is different.
