Description

  • The official state cookie of New Mexico! Our Biscochitos fragrance is a mouthwatering blend of sugar cookies, star anise and a touch of ground cinnamon. History: Biscochitos were created by residents of New Mexico over the centuries, which was greatly influenced by local and indigenous customs after the recipe was brought to New Mexico by the first Spanish colonists.
  • Our all-natural, non-gmo vegan soy wax melts are free of cruelty, paraffin, dye, petroleum, carcinogens, parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
  • NET WT 3.5 oz

Our soy wax melts have an awesome scent throw! We use the maximum fragrance load, providing a long-lasting scent (60 to 72 hours). Our soy wax melts packaging makes 8 breakaway cubes. Use 1-2 at a time depending on the size of your wax warmer. Our melts are compatible with all types of wax and tart warmers (electric and traditional).

Biscochitos Recipe

Ingredients

3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1½ teaspoons baking powder

1 to 1½ teaspoons ground anise

½ teaspoon salt

½ pound lard, softened

½ cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

1 large egg

2 tablespoons sweet white wine, brandy, rum, apple or pineapple juice

¼ cup sugar and ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon for the topping

Directions

1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, anise, and salt and set aside.

2. Beat the lard in an electric mixer, gradually adding the sugar, and beat until extremely fluffy and light, about 8 minutes. Don’t shortcut this step. Stop the mixer every couple of minutes and scrape the sides of the mixing bowl.

3. Add the egg, followed by the wine, and continue beating.

4. Mix in the dry ingredients, adding about one-third of the mixture at a time. Stop the mixer as you make each addition, and beat no longer than necessary to incorporate the dry ingredients. A sti pie-crust type of dough is what you’re seeking.

5. Chill the dough for about 15 minutes for easy handling.

6. Preheat the oven to 350.

7. Roll out the dough ¼-inch thick on a floured work surface and cut with a paring knife into a fleur-de-lis, or cut with a small cookie cutter. Avoid handling the dough any more than necessary, one of the keys to the melt-in-your-mouth texture.

8. Transfer the cookies to ungreased cookie sheets.

9. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until just set and pale golden.

10. While the cookies bake, stir together the topping.

11. When the cookies are done, cool for just a minute or two on the baking sheets, then gently dunk the top of each in the cinnamon sugar.

12. Transfer to absorbent paper to finish cooling.
