I found this recipe in a Mexican cooking magazine called "Panaderia Mexicana Tradicional". The recipe was originally written in Spanish and the measurements were in grams. I translated the recipe into English and converted the measurements to accomodate the American kitchen. Living in Texas, we have a lot of Mexican bakeries! I love going into the panaderia by the farmer's market. I love Mexican pastries because they are not too sweet. This cookie is one of my favorites!
