Default Tortas de aceite

They started selling these in our local supermarket (Whole Foods) here in Washington about a year ago. Apparently they're popular because last time we got them the cashier commented that they keep selling out. Olive oil, light pastry, sugar, and a hint of licorice (fennel seeds I think). The brand they carry is Ines Rosales ("las legitimas y acreditadas", according to the packaging) from Seville. My wife brought back a different brand (las ilegitmas y nonacreditadas?) from Spain last month and it wasn't as good (too flaky).

Eh, esas son las típicas de Sevilla. Esa marca es la que más me gusta. Las de otras marcas son demasiado dulces para mi gusto, y no saben bastante a aceite (quizá no utilizan aceite de oliva o es de peor calidad). Aquí pueden encontrarse en casi todas las tiendas y en muchos bares.

En mi familia se hacen también otro tipo de tortas de aceite, más gruesas y tiernas. Se hacen con masa de pan, pero los otros ingredientes son prácticamente iguales.

Creo que Ines Rosales va a ganar mucho "pasta"....como los españoles quienes empezaran a vender las clementinas aqui hace unos años.

Falsantes! (is there a commission of tortas de aceite that goes about accrediting and verifying the authenticity of the different tortas?)
