Hi! I've been looking for years for a recipe for what I would call a mexican sugar
cookie I used to find them in Mexican markets, usually in a bag of assorted breads
and cookies generically called "pan dulce". The ones I'm interested in were about
4 inches in diameter, pink colored, crackly top but still a little chewy. Very mild
flavor, like a sugar cookie. I suspect they are made with lard, but not sure.
If you can find the recipe I would greatly appreciate it!
I could not locate it, but I seem to recall a very similar request a few years ago.
The request was vague, just a description of how the cookies looked, and as a result
I was unable to locate anything specific. I'm afraid that it's the same with your
request. I cannot really search for a recipe by a description of how the finished
product looks. "Pan dolce' simply refers to "pastry". It is not the name of a specific
cookie. I suggest you contact some Mexican bakeries or look at some online photos of
Mexican cookies to try to find out the specific name of your cookie.
Have a look at these sites first:

I'll post this for reader input
