  1. First toast the flour on a tray in low heat (300°F) in the oven. Make sure it doesn’t become brown and stir occasionally (take out of the oven to stir it). Blend the flour, sugar, cinnamon, anise, nuts and lard together. When the dough is ready form the biscuits (about 1 inch thick and about 3 inch diameter) and place on a non stick tray (could use wax paper). Bake at 300°F for about 15-20 minutes. Let the biscuits cool down and decorate with confectioners sugar. Traditionally these go individually wrapped in white tissue paper.
