Blogger provides us with this recipe- Mantecaditos: Tasty bite size-cookies
Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, Christenings or Christmas, whatever the reason for your celebration, mantecaditos are a delicious option.
The history of these little cookies dates back to the 16th century Spain, as did the tradition of eating 12 grapes on New Year's Eve. But you don’t have to wait to see Santa to enjoy this irresistible galletica. This historically Andalusian dessert has spread to other regions where they are customized to the people’s liking, like the Puerto Rican version that uses guava, or the Dominican-style mantecadito that uses peanut oil.
Despite its different interpretations, the basic ingredients are flour, lard and sugar. But if you want less fat, you can replace the lard with vegetable oil or peanut oil.
The mantecadito is not like the polvorón cookie. Although it’s a derivative, polvorónes have almonds and its shape is more elongated.
Imagine savoring one with a cup of cappuccino or tea Qué Rica Vida
