Recipe 67 - Mantecados

I wanted to bake these before christmas since they are christmassy treats. Unfortunately we were both mega busy and didn't get much baking time. Never mind, we'll make them now. Better late than never as they say.

The recipe is here. We'll be needing:

  • 430g vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 330g granulated sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 shot glasses of anise (or vodka and anise flavouring)
  • 1 lemon peel, grated
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 900g unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg white, beaten for glaze

That's clearly enough to make about a thousand of the things so I'll make half that I think!
