My family is from Northern Mexico, just miles from Monterrey. This is very close to the recipe we use for hojarascas! No anise, or anything like that! We use water instead of evaporated milk.

I'm sure these cookies are delicious; however, what you're describing are NOT hojarascas. Hojarascas are made with anise, as well as cinnamon, brewed in a tea with just a pinch of yeast and then added to the dry mixture (flour and sugar) and lard or shortening.

These are always a big hit! I sell cakes and deserts and when customers tastes these they are really amazed at the flavor and how the cookies just melt in your mouth.
