Biscochitos

 

 

 I made these cookies for my Daniel's birthday.

I thought he'd love them with his strong, black coffee 

that's his and his Granny's favorite!


Biscochitos 

bis-co-CHEE-toe

These spicy cookies from New Mexico 
are rich, crisp and very easy to make. 
Biscochitos are the holiday cookie staple in New Mexico. 
The Biscochito is New Mexico’s Official State Cookie 
as declared by the New Mexico Legislature in 1989. 
Biscochitos were first introduced to Mexico by 
Spanish settlers who brought the recipe from Spain. 
Stored in a tightly sealed container, 
they can be frozen up to six months.

Cheesy Ham Chicken




This is a great recipe that makes a 
chicken breast a little more dressy!  
It's great served with vegetables or would be 
wonderful as a sandwich on a buttery toasted bun!

Italian Cream Cake




 A sweet friend asked if I would make 
one of these cakes for her Momma...
I had not made one in years...
 since our Christmas celebrations when I was a teenager...
It was always one of my family's favorites!
It brought back many fond memories for me 
and I'm hoping her Momma enjoyed every bite!
