Mantecaditos Recipe (Butter Cookies)
Mantecaditos Recipe (Butter Cookies): Perfect to serve alongside the afternoon cafecito, these cookies are easy to prepare, even for the novice baker.
Butter for greasing the tray
of all-purpose flour
of baking soda
of vanilla extract
stick of butter
chilled (3/4 cup)
of brown sugar
Pre-heat oven to 400 ºF [200 ºC]. Grease a baking tray (or use a silpat).
Mix the remaining ingredients in a food processor, pulse until the mix forms rice-sized granules.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Form balls with the dough, about an inch in diameter. Press down to flatten a bit (see picture).
Bake until light golden (about 20 minutes). Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature on a wire tray.
Traditional Mantecadito recipe calls for vanilla, but you can try other flavors too. I particularly like rum (non-alcoholic) or almond flavoring. Feel free to experiment.
