Biscochitos- a Cut Out Sugar Cookie

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Biscuits

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 c Margarine or butter
  • 3 tb Sweet sherry
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 c Flour
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 2 ts Anise seed crushed
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Cinnamon


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and margarine, sherry and egg in a
large bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the 1/4 cup sugar and
the cinnamon. Divide dough into two balls. Roll out each ball to 1/4 inch
thick and cut into any shape with cookie cutters. Place on ungreased sheet.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on the cookies before
baking. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden.

These cookies are cute made into a cactus shape. Pinch off balls of dough,
one larger than a quarter and 2 the size of a nickel. Roll each of the
balls between your palms to make cigar shape. Flatten the large one to make
the main stem of the cactus. Bend one third of each of the two smaller ones
to make a J shape and attach them at uneven intervals on each side to make
the "arms". Flatten them to match the trunk and bake.

Let you daughter taste the anise first. Often children do not like it as
much as adults. If your daughter does not like the anise flavor simply
substitute cinnamon oil or flavoring. It is very popular in Mexico.
