Servings: 4 dozen cookies
Biscochitos are New Mexico’s official state cookie.
They have simple yet rich flavors – cinnamon, sugar and anise – that melt in your mouth. These cookies are essential to weddings, graduations, anniversaries and of course the holidays.
“...The anise-scented, lard-enriched shortbreads are essential to weddings, graduations, and anniversaries, and are so popular at Christmas that in December, biscochitos comprise maybe thirty percent of the diet of the average New Mexican!”
