“This is New Mexico's traditional cookie. A great thick sugar cookie that is dusted with cinnamon-sugar. The traditional shape is fleur-de-lis, but use your favorite cookie cutters if you like.” - by beckyann8
Original recipe yields 6 dozen
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the lard and 1 1/2 cups sugar until smooth. Mix in the anise seed, and beat until fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Add the sifted ingredients and brandy, and stir until well blended.
- On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 or 1/4 inch thickness, and cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. The traditional is fleur-de-lis. Place cookies onto baking sheets. Mix together the 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the tops of the cookies.
- Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.

"This recipe is the best. My Grandmother used to make me these cookies as a little girl. The only difference to the recipe was she used ( pineapple-juice)instead of (brandy). She would roll the cookies..." See more in the sugar & cinnamon when the cookies were still hot. Thank You VERY MUCH."
"Well, first off: Never send a man to do a womans job. :p My husband bought All Vegetable Shortnening instead of lard. Still, they came out DELICIOUS! I was told they come out better w/ lard, so i..." See more'll use that next time. Also, I used brandy, not pineapple juice like another suggested, but I did use PJ to moisten up the dough when needed. THANK YOU!"
