These Mexican dessert "cakes" are actually cookies, much loved for their delicate texture and flavor. Here, they're drizzled with chocolate for extra pizzazz.
Elegant and Delicious

These cookies are extremely delicious. They have a light, delicate texture when properly prepared, and are simple to make for even the most inexperienced chefs. They are a shortbread, though, so if you are not a fan of shortbread, you will not like these cookies! Every time I make these they receive high praise and people always request the recipe. They are a nice thing to make if you want to impress people without working too hard. Enjoy!

I did not find mine crumbly at all, but very airy and not too sweet, but then that's how we like it here.

These were okay...they could have been a little more moist though...the chocolate chips made them better.

I found these cookies to be just average. They were quite crumbly and not very sweet. I used white chips instead of chocolate which tasted good, but overall it is not a recipe I would use again. Sorry about that.

These are so delicious. Chocolate and cinnamon, with that wonderful crumbly 'short' texture. Especially nice at the holidays, but also yummy in the summer.

I had to chose a recipe for my spanish class. I chose this one because it was easy to bake and looked absolutely yummy.

I thought they were alright. My son, a picky-eater, on the other hand absolutely loved them. I don't think they'd be all that good if not for the chocolate chips.

I made these "cakes" for a Good-Bye party for our Library Director. They were such a hit they stole the show!! I too had a little trouble with crumbling and think that next time I might try adding an egg. Let me know what you all think!

Oh my goodness these "cakes" were wonderful! I added extra vanilla, nuts and a lot more chocolate chips. They were not too sweet either, with only half cup a sugar and two cups of flower. They were quite a hit at my house and I will most definitely make them again!
This famous classic American cookie is a treat no matter what the age or occasion. Enjoy it with a glass of cold milk.
Creamy Pumpkin Soup makes a great first course for a Thanksgiving meal or Fall and Winter entertaining.
For an after dinner surprise, try the Chocolate Satin Pie. One bite and the smooth chocolate richness will have your loved ones asking for more.
