  • Summary

    Known as pepitorias, these tasty caramel-filled wafer "tacos" embellished with toasted pumpkin seeds are a regular offering at Mexican markets and sweets shops, especially in the city of Puebla, which is famous for so many confections. The wafers are traditionally brightly colored, but we chose to stick with a more seasonal white-and-gold motif. Since tinted edible wafer paper is hard to come by in the United States, we used precut white Back-Oblaten, imported from Germany, and we explain how to color them. Painting them with food coloring or water softens them enough to fold around the caramel.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup raw green (hulled) pumpkin seeds
    • Powdered water-soluble food colorings in assorted colors
    • 5 teaspoon water, divided
    • 50 (70-mm) Back-Oblaten (German round edible wafer papers; about 2 3/4-inch)
    • 1 cup dulce de leche, cajeta, or arequipe
