I loved these as posted, then I made some changes to try to duplicate the real Spanish version of these delightful cookies, but many will probably be turned off by the LARD.
Substitute lard for the butter, double the cinnamon in the cookie, and roll in sesame seeds instead of the sugar/cinnamon coating. They should come out super soft like fine sand and just hold together. In Spain they are traditionally wrapped after baking and you SQUEEZE the cookie before unwrapping so it holds together. Forget Chocolate Chip or Peanut Butter Cookies, THIS IS WHAT COOKIES ARE ALL ABOUT!
