Mystery Mexican cookie!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I worked at a horse ranch and the ranch hand's wife made these amazing Mexican cookies! After several translations I was able to duplicate what she created. I sadly lost the recipe after many years It was a very bread-y cookie that involved boiled sugar cane, oil, vanilla, lots of flour, and cinnamon. It was delicious and not overly sweet. Any ideas? Thanks!

If it involved yeast, pan dulce.  No yeast, polvorones.

hmm I looked at polvorones recipes.. and this cookie recipe I am trying to locate has more flour and was more "bready."

Was it a rolled cookie?  There are many recipes for Biscochitos,  which is a traditional Mexican sugar cookie, often seasoned with anise and typically sprinkled with cinnamon.  The texture of these can vary from chewy [sort of like a thin biscuit],  to more crisp.  I have an authentic recipe which I will post on request.
