- 1/2 cup lard
- 2/3 cup sugar plus 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon rum
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon anise seed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat lard in mixer until creamy. Add 2/3 cup sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg and rum and mix until blended. Add the flour, baking powder, anise seed and salt. Beat until a smooth dough is formed.
Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut the dough into desired shapes. In a shallow bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar. Dredge 1 side of cookie in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place cookie, sugared side up, on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to10 minutes or until golden brown, rotating the baking sheets halfway through the cooking time. Allow cookies to cool on a cooling rack.
