      I chose this recipe primarily because it doesn't call for lard, I had all the ingredients (except the anise seed, which was easily located in the supermarket) and it was easy to halve for our small get together. It was a winner! The dough came together very easily, I was worried that it seemed dry but it was perfect. With half the recipe I made 24 star shaped cookies, baked for 14 minutes. Everyone there had eaten biscochitos before and all agreed that these tasted just as they should. We served them with New Mexican Hot Chocolate (New Mexican Hot Chocolate). Thanks for a yummy cookie Millie!
