I realize that the late Dr. Atkins is probably rolling over in his grave right now at the sight of these ingredients. Yes, that would be lard and 9 cups of white flour (sifted 4 times....I'm just sayin). But it's the holidays and I don't cook with these everyday. You could use shortening or butter but the taste would not be the same.
This picture makes me so proud.........this was my job as a little girl when I helped Mom. I used to love gently covering the hot cookies with a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Tyson seemed to like helping too; however, after the 4th dozen he asked if he could go outside and look for worms. Clearly my Mexican family tradition couldn't hold water to grub hunting.
This is not a difficult recipe it is just a little involved. It is definitely meant to be a shared activity......the more hands the better. You should get over 7 to 8 dozen from one batch. I will gladly forward the recipe if anyone is interested.
