Celina’s Biscochitos offers traditional New Mexican biscochito cookies for sale by the dozens. Derived from the Spanish diminutive form of bizcocho – the Spanish name for biscuit – biscochitos, flavored with cinnamon and anise, are a delicious and savory treat.
Celina uses a recipe that has been handed down from her grandmother. Using only the most authentic techniques, these traditional New Mexican biscochitos will transport you back to a simple time when these biscuit cookies were the cookie of choice for residents of the Southwest. They only use lard in their cookies – no butter or oil substitutes – which results in that perfectly moist taste and feel that’s characteristic of traditional biscochitos. All biscochitos are made a quarter-inch thick, with cinnamon and anise spices added after they come out of the oven – keeping with tradition.
Traditional biscochitos are perfect to serve at special celebrations such as weddings, baptisms and religious holidays like Christmas. Commonly served alongside hot chocolate, biscochitos are a perfect cookie to dip into hot beverages like coffee, as well. Order a sampler or a dozen and discover the great taste for yourself.
While we do our best with packaging, biscochitos are very fragile and may break during transit. We are not held liable for breakage, but we can always try to file a claim with the carrier if you provide images. Thank you for understanding!
