When you have family over why not make these delicious Biscochitos? They're great with a cup of coffee or tea! Traditionally cut in fleur-de-lis shapes, we've used a round cookie cutter here. Makes 6 dozen 2" cookies.


  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • cookie cutters


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the lard and sugar until smooth.
  4. Add Anise Oil Extract and beat until fluffy.
  5. Stir in the eggs one at a time.
  6. Scrape the bowl and add the sifted ingredients and brandy. Stir until well blended.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to ½" to ¼" thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters.
  8. Place cookies onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  9. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the tops of the cookies.
  10. Bake for 10 minutes until the bottoms are lightly browned.
Try these delicious Biscochitos with a cup of coffee or tea!
