    There is a pretty large variety of styles of biscochitos. Did you have a particular one in mind?

    To search for a recipe, type the title or a key word in the Search box at the top of the page, than click on the red Search button. You can then use the Recipe Sifter (under the Top Recipes tab) to include or exclude specific ingredients, etc.

    Yes, they are our official state cookie. As I said, there are many different styles and recipes, some have citrus juice, some have brandy, wine, or rum, some include ground nuts. One local vender even sells a spicy red chile-spiked one! In southern NM they are often dusted with cinnamon sugar while still hot. The shapes differ from area to area. One of the recipes in the database should be close to what you expect. What part of NM did your cookies come from? That might make a difference.
    Whatever you do, choose a recipe that uses lard, not vegetable shortening. They are traditionally a lard-based shortbread, although some recipes use butter. Here's an article on one version, with recipe.

    Hi again,
    I guess they were bought at a bakery in Alburquqe ( not sure how you spell it )
    I had them once before at a reunion and that time they were bought at Costco in New Mexico.
    The recipe you sent sounds good think I'll give it a try after looking for some lard.
    Lol might have to make a special trip to New Mexico, live in Colorado so not too bad.
