Ingredients
  • 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

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.
