"Our eight children love helping make these sweet crunchy treats. We fry flour tortillas for a few seconds in oil, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. They're fun to make for a large group. I usually do the frying, then have one of the older kids add the coating." — by Terry Lynn Ayers

Marranitos (Mexican Pig-Shaped Cookies)

Marranitos (Mexican Pig-Shaped Cookies)

"Marranitos (or cochinos, or puerquitos, as are they are called in some Mexican-American communities) are often called 'Gingerbread Pigs,' although they don't actually have ginger in them - and no cinnamon either. In fact, traditional marranitos get their delicious spicy-brown goodness from molasses. This recipe is a trans-pecos region variation, it uses the non-traditional addition of cinnamon. You may wish to try also adding a bit of dry ground ginger, and you may use a milk wash instead of an egg wash." — by nmcowgirl

"Buttery cookies that are crunchy yet tender. A gluten-free adaptation of the traditional recipe. Make sure your ingredients are really gluten-free. As a variation, dip each cookie halfway in melted chocolate chips and roll in nuts or sprinkles. Arrange on plate. These cookies freeze very well." — by Laura Higley
