BISCOCHITOS - NEW MEXICO'S STATE COOKIE
If you like snickerdoodles, you will love these tasty treats! NOTES: Biscochitos are the state cookie of New Mexico for a good reason - they're simply delicious! They are easy and fun to make, especially at Christmas time, and they store well in a tin or cookie jar for at least 2 weeks (they've never lasted longer than that at my house!). The lard is a key ingredient, important in the texture and flavor of the final cookie, so please do not replace it with another type of fat!

- In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the crushed anise and orange zest.
- In a separate large bowl, combine the sugar and lard. Then, using an electric mixer, beat the lard and sugar until light and fluffy - about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Gradually beat in the flour mixture and stop as soon as mixture is combined. Dough will be crumbly and more like a pie crust dough and than a normal cookie dough (see picture in post above).
- Using your hands, work the dough into a ball, like you would a pie crust, incorporating all the loose pieces of flour mixture. Then, wrap in plastic and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon for topping.
