Traditional cookies from Monterrey, NL in Mexico, with a delicate cinnamon flavor and really easy to follow!

Top Review by mirna b.

These receipies are not hoscarasjas, traditional Mexican cookies. They only have flour,lard , sugar, and cinnamon. I also am from Nuevo León ,born and raised. They new way with Splenda is incorrect also. We never had Splenda back in the day. You can't claim something when you altar the way they are made.
