Cookbook: Pionono  Media: Pionono

Pionono is any of several varieties of pastry popular in Spain, South America, and the Philippines. It is named after Pope Pius IX's Italian name, "Pio Nono".[1]


Piononos are small pastries traditional in Santa Fe, a small town adjacent to the city of Granada, Spain. A pionono has two parts: a thin layer of pastry rolled into a cylinder, fermented with different kinds of syrup which give the pionono a sweet and pleasant texture, crowned with toasted cream. It is typically eaten in one or two bites.
