A gordita can be one of many small Mexican treats. This one comes from chef Fany Gerson, who was born in Mexico City and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America. She has worked in kitchens worldwide, including Michelin three-star Akelare in Spain, Eleven Madison Park, and Rosa Mexicano in New York. Her Gorditas de Piloncillo are sweet and savory and the perfect side dish for a fiesta.
