  17. Then bake the pastillas in a preheated oven at 450°F (230°C) for 30 minutes. Halfway through baking time, flip the parcels over to brown them on both sides. Once baked and golden, remove the pastillas from the oven, drain them a little on kitchen paper and then place them on a large serving dish. Sprinkle with icing sugar and ground cinnamon. Serve hot.
