“Concha” means “shell” in spanish. And doesn’t this look like a beautiful shell? Not only is it beautiful, but its soft and buttery and slightly sweet and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Conchas from Elizabeth’s Bakery are definitely the BEST mexican sweet bread I’ve ever had. Hands down. (They also bake AMAZING rolls which I already wrote about here.) I didn’t even like conchas before I had one from Elizabeth’s. The ones from the grocery store are always dry and stick to the roof of your mouth. But not so at Elizabeth’s… If you live even remotely close to Elizabeth’s I recommend that you make the drive. I promise it will be worth it.

p.s. They also make Conchitas (which are ‘little’ shells) which are just as tasty and actually more manageable to hold and eat. Either one, you can’t go wrong. :)
