  • 8 pieces pandesal rolls

  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Using a serrated knife, trim off the top and bottom of the pandesal very thinly and cut each roll into halves, about 1/2-inch thick.
  • In a small bowl, combine butter and sugar and stir until smooth.
  • Spread the butter-sugar mixture thinly on each side of the bread slices.
  • Arrange the coated bread on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Bake in a 200 F oven for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until dry and crunchy.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
