January always feels like the longest month of the year but there's good news friends --- we made it to February!😅 Now we have Fat Tuesday, Valentine's Day and a long President's day weekend to look forward to.😅 (Just a heads up: be on the lookout for a new King Cake recipe for Mardi Gras coming soon. 💚💛💜) Oh, and I would be remiss if I failed to mention the most under appreciated holiday of all: Groundhogs Day!!! 🦫
I love a taco bar as much as the next girl but I always struggle with what to serve as a finale to a Mexican feast. Flan is great but I don't feel like I posses the equipment, culinary skills (or the latin genes) necessary to make a proper flan.🇲🇽😅 Churros also seem like an obvious choice to follow great Mexican fare but I try and avoid frying food at home. 💁🏻♀️
So, what's a girl with a ravenous sweet tooth like me to do to finish off a Mexican dinner? By the way, you should know that in the world of me, a little something sweet is absolutely REQUIRED after every evening meal. According to google the answer is ... Mexican sugar cookies.🍥💁🏻♀️ I cannot confirm how authentically Mexican these cookies are but I can tell you that they are ... DELICIOUS!!!
Mexican Sugar Cookies
3 Tablespoon sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups flour
Chill cookies in refrigerator 10 minutes. Bake cookies 10 minutes at 350.
Remove cookies from the oven. Flatten with a metal spatula and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake an additional 5-10 minutes.
Enjoy and Ciao!
