    JERSEY FLOURCHILD's Note:

    A melt in your mouth shortbread style cinnamon cookie. It is made traditionally for the Christmas season in New Mexico households. I obtained this recipe from a friend, Namoi, who was born and raised in NM.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 cups lard, do not substitute Crisco (mantecca)
    • 12 tablespoons sugar
    • 12 tablespoons orange juice or 12 tablespoons fruity wine
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons anise extract
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
    • cinnamon sugar
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in large bowl, set aside.
    2. 2
      In mixer bowl beat the lard and sugar together until light and fluffy.
    3. 3
      Add the egg yolks, cinnamon, anise extract and juice/wine. Mix till incorporated.
    4. 4
      Add flour mixture to lard mixture and mix well.
    5. 5
      Roll dough out onto floured counter top to 1/2" thickness. I work half the dough half at a time, rolling into a large square. Cutting into strips about 1 inch wide, then cut those strips into 2" cookies. (A ruler works great!).
    6. 6
      Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400°F for about 8-10 minutes.
    7. 7
      While cookies are warm roll them in cinnamon sugar.

      These are the BEST melt in your mouth Biscochos I have ever had. I have made them with wine and orange juie and they both taste Wonderful! They are very authentic and like the ones I remember as a child. I have been using this recipe for the past 3 Easters and Christmases now and these cookies are always a hit!!!
