New Mexico’s state cookie is blended with anise and cinnamon, baked until golden and delicately hand sugared.

HISTORY OF BISCOCHITOS

 Introduced to Mexico in the 16th century by Spanish explorers, biscochitos or biscochos have become a New Mexican tradition. They are considered a Christmas treat but traditionally they were also enjoyed at celebrations such as weddings, baptisms, and quinceaneras. In 1989 the bizcochito was declared as New Mexico’s state cookie making us the first state to have an official cookie. The only argument over this decision was how to spell it and though biscochito is still the most popular version, bizcochito prevailed with the most votes.
