DIRECTIONS

  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in large bowl, set aside.
  • In mixer bowl beat the lard and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolks, cinnamon, anise extract and juice/wine. Mix till incorporated.
  • Add flour mixture to lard mixture and mix well.
  • 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!).
  • Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400°F for about 8-10 minutes.
  • While cookies are warm roll them in cinnamon sugar.
