But this description we found fits what shes had in the past Marķa Luisa is as luscious as the name implies. Filled with a dense, Salvadoran-style creme anglaise, the oblong pastel includes fragile top and bottom rice-flour crusts finished with a dusting of cinnamon sugar. Imagine tucking a fork into one of these!
Does anyone have any idea? I told her maybe there are two desserts called Maria Luisa, one cakey and one pastry?

The lady from the second place, who's offering is not quite as luscious looking but is better tasting, identifies the filling as 'milk cream' in her best English.
I've also seen this at both places with a jam filling of some sort like the item at the bottom of the picture but I'm not sure if that's also called a Marialuisa.
Some of the other items listed on a flyer from the larger place include budines, enmieladas, quesadillas magdalenas, margaritas, marquezate, monjos, semitas, and picudas. The only other Salvadoran pastries I've identified for sure are buneulos and semitas.
