The Mexican theme meal of the South Arm Women Community Kitchen ends with a Mexican cookie called Orange Bizcochitos.
Bizcochitos are anise-flavoured cookies that originated in New Mexico. Prepare the dough in advance, and refrigerate up to three days. Store baked cookies in an airtight container for up to three days. Omit the aniseed if you don’t care for its licorice flavour.
