Tortita negra (little black pastry) is a Spanish dessert which is flat at its base and round on the sides. They are eaten in Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela. They are a popular food at children's parties.[1]


The recipe includes flour, salt, butter, and milk, and a covering of brown sugar. The name comes from the color it acquires when the sugar is cooked.
