       Title: Biscocitos (Rio Grande Biscuit Cookie)
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       6 c  All purpose flour
       3 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Salt
       2 c  Butter
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
       2 ts Anise seed
       2    Eggs
     1/2 c  Brandy
     1/4 c  Sugar
       1 tb Cinnamon
  
     In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a
   separate bowl cream the butter, 1 1/2 cups of the sugar and anise seed.
   Beat the eggs until light and fluffy and add to the creamed mixture. Add
   the flour mixture and the brandy, using only enough brandy to make a stiff
   dough.  Mix until well blended. Knead slightly and roll to 1/4-inch
   thickness.
      Combine the cinnamon and remaining sugar, and dust the pastry with the
   mixture. Cut into shapes and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350
   oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
