bizcochitos de grasa, bizcochito cookie
Bizcochito or biscochito is a crisp lard- or butter-based cookie, flavored with cinnamon2 and anise3 The name is a Spanish diminutive form of bizcocho The dough is rolled and traditionally cut into the shape or stars and crescent moons

The cookie was developed by residents of New Mexico4 over the centuries from the first Spanish colonists5 of what was then known as Santa Fe de Nuevo México The recipe for making the cookie has been greatly influenced not only by local and indigenous customs but also by recipes brought to New Mexico by immigrants from other Hispanic countries

Bizcochitos are served during special celebrations, such as wedding receptions, baptisms, and religious holidays especially during the Christmas season26 It is commonly served along with hot chocolate6 The cookie is seldom known outside the boundaries of the original Spanish province, although Spanish speakers may recognize the association with bizcocho, from the name, and may have some idea of what they must be, even if they have not encountered them beforecitation needed

State cookieedit

In 1989, the US State of New Mexico made the biscochito its official state cookie63 This act made New Mexico the first US state to have an official state cookie37 It was chosen to help maintain traditional home-baked cookery
