Bizcochitos, with their wonderful citrus and spice flavors, are special cookies we look forward to each year. It just isn't Christmas Eve at our house if we don't have these cookies with mugs of Mexican hot chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) sugar cookie mix
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon aniseed, crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine cookie mix, flour, orange zest and aniseed. Stir in melted butter, egg and vanilla until blended.
  2. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. cookie cutter.
  4. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over cookies. Bake 6-9 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
