Mexican Sugar Cookies
February 19, 2007

These were very simple to make and quite tasty too. Reminded me of a cross between a shortbread cookie with a snickerdoodle type of flavor. Almost as good as my friend Esther's, whose recipe I was trying to duplicate, only her directions were a can of pre-creamed shortening, a 5 lb bag of flour, 2 c sugar, boil cinn stick and anise to make a tea, add that to dry, ...etc. LOL, I mentioned to her I just didn't need 1000 cookies! so I found this very similar recipe. I think she called these Biscochito. (I think that's how it's spelled) Our local grocery makes them and calls them "pan de polvo" also called "Mexican wedding cookies". Wonderful texture and flavor to these little cookies. They almost melt in your mouth. This made about 8 dozen tea sized cookies. Can't eat just one...Thanks for sharing this keeper!
