 My mother is fond of cookies ,so i try to look for such recipes which dont have egg as she is vegeterian ,so while flipping through my cake nd cookies book when i saw the recipe of Mexican Cinnamon Cookies ,i thought of giving it a try,for two good reason,first the recipe looked quiet simple and the second the recipe being eggless,so in the middle of night i preheated the oven and started kneading the dough,..:-)
They are also known as Pastelitos ,these cookies are traditional sweet shortbreads,served at wedding in Mexico,these cookies are specially dusted with icing sugar to match the brides dress.
