DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 500°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix the cornmeal and tapioca.
  • Add the eggs, the lard, and the grated cheese. Mix until fairly uniform, with no large lumps.
  • Dissolve the salt into the milk and add it to the meal mixture along with the anise.
  • Knead until smooth and anise is evenly distributed. It should have the consistency of soft clay.
  • Shape into small flattened balls for chipitas, or larger rings or ovals.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet until they are golden brown with a crisp exterior. (The inside will still be doughy with melted cheese.).
