Aoiz Costrada

The costrada (crust) is the traditional dessert of Aoiz. It is a pie with a golden, cake-like crust (hence its name) and an exquisite creamy filling. It is served warm, often accompanied by a light custard. A sublime dessert that lovers of sweets should not miss.

Ingredients: (for 8 portions)

Para la pasta:

  • 10 yemas de huevo
  • 200 gr. de azúcar
  • 200 gr. de manteca
  • 1 chorro de anís
  • 5 cucharadas de harina.

Para la crema:

  • 1 litro de leche
  • 7 cucharadas de azúcar
  • 2 yemas de huevo
  • 4 cucharadas de harina
  • ½ palo de canela.


Prepare the paste in a bowl, beating the egg yokes, sugar, lard and anise, and add flour gradually.

To make the custard, boil ¾ of a litre of milk with the cinnamon. Add sugar and gradually dilute the yokes, flour and the remaining ¼ litre of milk until it boils again.

Grease a baking tin with lard, put in half of the paste mixture, pour the custard on top and cover with the other half of the paste.

Preheat the oven and cook the dessert at 180º until the custard has curdled and the surface has browned (approx. 1 hour). Serve lukewarm.
