Teaching kids the fine, but simple art of baking cookies is a deliciously beautiful thing. Baking is super fun, from the mixing of the batter to the rolling out the dough to the general messiness.
La Victoria Bakery, the scrumptious Mission landmark of over 60 years, understands this and sets out to introduce kids to the wonders of baking pan dulce cookies. Each student receives a tutorial on the process: breaking eggs, working the dough, shaping the cookies -- they're in charge of producing the whole batch. Then, at the end of the class, the cookies go into the oven, and the kids get five cookies each to take home, and 1 cookie (and a glass of milk!) to eat then and there.

Me want cookie.
La Victoria Bakery has been making pan dulce the original way for over 60 years. Just the way grandfather and great-grandfather Maldonado had been doing before little Jr. opened La Victoria. Real milk, whole eggs. and fresh starter. We don’t do frozen, we don’t do powdered milk, and every batch has a unique recipe. We never disguise our pastries in tons of sugar like many others do. (Okay, we still do the pink cookie, but how can you have a Mexican bakery without a Polvoron Rosa?) My personal favorites are the: Niño Emvuelto, Rebanadas de Pasas, Cubilete de Queso, La Cocada, and of course, La Concha, the Queen of the Pan Dulce.
