Now playing: José Feliciano - Feliz Navidad

Cookie number four comes from New Mexico, developed by Spanish colonists and immigrants from other Hispanic countries. This cookie is served at weddings and at Christmas! I added a few twists of my own.

Preheat oven to 325 deg. F

1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp anise seed
1/8 c. orange juice
1 tbsp. orange marmalade (my twist)
Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling on top

Cream butter and sugar, add the dry ingredients alternately with the wet, until a smooth dough forms. Firm up in the refrigerator briefly. Roll out onto a floured board and cut into shapes. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake for 10 minutes.

Twist number two is Chipotle chocolate. For these I didn't sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, but you can feel free to keep that element.
