Southwestern Bizcochitos Recipe Reviews - (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Move over "Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" (from this website), because these are my new favorite! I didn't put the cinnamon sugar topping on because I want to ice them, but the anise and orange are sufficient to give these cookies great flavor without the cinnamon. If you roll the cookies to 1/8" thick, they puff up less for icing; but puffier cookies could easily be covered with fondant. I'll post photos when they're finished. Just wanted to give the recipe my review right away so that others won't be afraid to try the recipe! And, just for the record, I used margarine instead of Crisco and it worked fine. I did have to adjust for high altitude (7220 ft) by adding extra flour until the dough removed easily from the beater. With the anise and orange (I used dried grated peel and only 1-1/2 tsp), adding extra flour wasn't an issue as far as flavor. The dough rolls out really great - hardly even sticks to my plastic mat. Very easy to work with. Highly recommend that others try the recipe.
