Traditional Guatemalan Christmas Food: Dobladas
Dobladas (turned over) is our last meal at the Virgen of Guadalupe Celebrations. Dobladas are made from nixtamalized masa (maize dough) like tortillas, but other ingredients are added before the masa dish is folded over itself and cooked.

Guatemalan Sweet Cakes
yield: Makes 9 (snack or dessert) muffins
active time: 15 min
total time: 1 1/4 hr
In Mexico, a quesadilla is more like what we think of as a grilled cheese sandwich, but with tortillas instead of bread. In Guatemala, these sweet little cheese things are like buttery cupcakes, and they are baked as special-occasion treats for children who've had a good report card or lost a tooth. 
• 3/4 cup rice flour (not Asian) 
• 1 teaspoon baking powder 
• 1/4 teaspoon salt 
• 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 
• 2/3 cup sugar 
• 3 large eggs 
• 1/2 cup farmer cheese at room temperature 


Equipment: a muffin pan with 12 (1/2-cup) cups; paper liners 
Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Line muffin cups. 
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. 
Beat together butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, then beat in cheese. Mix in flour mixture at low speed until just combined. 
Divide among nine muffin cups (a slightly rounded 1/4-cup batter each). Bake until pale golden and a wooden pick inserted in center of a cake comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool cakes in pans on a rack 15 minutes, then turn out onto rack and cool to warm. 
Cooks' notes: • Cakes are best eaten the day they are made. • Cakes can also be baked in lined mini-muffin pans for 30 minutes; recipe yields 30 mini muffins.
