Finally, we would like to explain the importance of sweets in Menorca. Pastissets are part of the popular Menorcan tradition, which is offered to guests at gatherings. It may be a very old preparation, as there is no certificate of its origin.
In the past, this sweet was mainly served at Christmas or important family occasions. Nowadays, it is a sweet that can be bought in any patisserie all year round.
They are flower-shaped pastries covered with icing sugar, similar to polvorones, but with a much more compact paste. The preparation is quite simple, all you need is lard, water, sugar, flour and egg.
