Galletas Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 Cups sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Cup butter
  • 1/4 Cup sprinkles

Directions

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a mixer beat the butter and sugar together until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add the egg yokls and vanilla extract. Continue mixing.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixture and stir it together.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and grease it.

Shape the dough into small balls and flatten with the back of a spoon. Or roll out the dough and use a fun cookie cutter to achieve the shape you want. Place the cookies on the sheet pan.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.


Hojarascas cookies are very popular in the States of Nuevo Leon and Coahuila, and are sold almost everywhere in the city of Monterrey, NL. If you go to the grocery store, they will have some already packaged in small plastic containers even some butcher stores and restaurants have them for sale right there next to the cash register.

These cookies were traditionally made using lard, but throughout the years, many new versions of this recipe have appeared, using a mix of lard and shortening or just shortening and some even using butter. Some recipes also add eggs and even vanilla. Personally, I like to mix lard and shortening, but since not many cooks can find lard, I
adapted this recipe using only shortening, so you can have no excuse to make them at home!
