In Villena’s day it could be a meat or sweet pastry or just cheese. It was made during specific periods of the year. In Leon it was a cheese made in Lacinan but today is a hot ewe’s cream cheese or a mixture of animal meat.
Today it can made as filling for Mexican tortillas and served as a snack. During Passover, the Jews make it with mazto dough. See almojabanas, levanduras, mantecados, quesada, and tarta de queso.
