Muy mala, no está muy bien explicada, el piloncillo se enfría y queda chicloso y la masa espantosa no se puede ni hornear, tuve que tirar todo, en algún lugar le falta agua

Esta mal la receta, en los ingredientes mencionan baking soda que es bicarbonato y en el procedimiento, dicen baking powder que es polvo para hornear. El resultado de la masa es muy denso y seco, se quiebra, le hace falta líquido pero no lo pide en la receta, el grosor debería de ser mayor ya que salieron como galletas en lugar de puerquitos, no recomiendo hacer esta receta.
