Use biscuit cutters to make a variety of shapes with these delicious biscuits. Fun to make with kids.
I had hoped to find a traditional New Mexican biscochitos recipe and was excited to try this one. Unfortunately, the dough was impossible to roll out and I had to take extra time I didn't really have to roll dough into individual balls and press with a glass to flatten. I think due to this extra handling, the cookies turned out tougher than they should be. The biscochitos recipe I had made in the past resulted in very buttery, fine-textured cookies- these were hard and crumbly. I took care not to over-bake, and followed the recipe to a "T". Also, it should be noted that this recipe makes FAR more than 3 dozen cookies. I think I ended up with 6 dozen cookies or more. I do not recommend using this recipe. - 23 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I live in New Mexico and these are the best Biscochito cookies I have ever had!!! I have made them for the last few years at Christmas and told my firends/famliy I only had time to make one kind of Cookie and this is the one they ALL picked. I use real butter and double the anise seeds (which isn't really nesseccary). !Muy Bueno! -- Thanks for sharing!!! - 09 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe was not the best. I have another recipe which I wish I would of used, but instead I tried this one because the ratings seemed high. I will never use this one again. I had to add water to make the dough form. It was so dry and crumbling, I had to add water to make the dough form. I do not recommend this recipe. - 20 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
