Easy, delicious and a bit different. I've been making them for many years., "Tweaked" the recipe a couple of times. Light, crispy cookies, a bit of unusual flavor with the anise seed and whole wheat flour.

How to Make Whole wheat Bizcochitos


  1. Mix the 1/2 cup sugar, both flours, baking powder and the 3/4 tsp. anise seed in small bowl.
  2. Cream butter and the 1/2 cup sugar.
    Add dry ingredients, then water.
    Blend well til dough forms a ball.
  3. Roll out 1/8 inch thick. (Thinner for crisper cookies). You may cut into shapes, or just cut into squares. I sometimes roll a pie crimper along the dough to cut squares or rectangles, about 1 1/2" on each side.
  4. Lightly grease cookie sheet and sprinkle anise seed onto it. (About a tbs.)
    P)lace cookies on pan. Sprinkle with mixture of cinnamon and the tbs. of sugar.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees 14-17 minutes. Remove cookies to rack to cool. Keep in airtight container.
    Sometimes I add a little colored sugar to topping.
