New Mexico Biscochos
- Ready In:
- 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.

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!!!
