    PASTELILLOS / Sweet Yucca Pastries     

   Ingredients :
2.2 lb (1 k) yucca (cassava)
3 oz (100 g) squash (optional)
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground aniseed

Vegetable oil
Confectioners sugar


Peel yuccas and cook in water together with squash, salt and aniseed.

Transfer to a bowl or a work surface and mash with potato masher until a smooth dough is obtained.
