Torta De Hojas
I made mine with the alternate layers of whipped cream/manjar mixture and covered the whole stack with manjar, which required boiling four cans of condensed milk. I put chopped walnuts all 'round the side and strawberries on top. It's among the photos shown here. I must admit, it was surprisingly delicious. The flavor was not quite as intense as I had read in other reviews, and I noticed that after eating a whole slice, the flavor did not linger very long. It did not weigh heavily on my stomach either. I would consider it a tasty, full-bodied dessert, but not overly filling. The manjar was not like a dense, heavy caramel. It was thin and light tasting, although very sticky. It was very good, and we will make it again, but it was not fabulous enough to impress seven judges in a dessert bake-off at my workplace. It did not even place in the top four. It lost out to flan, apple pie, lemon cupcakes, and apple crisp.
