10 - Mexican Chocolate Slice-and-Bake Cookies

What sets Mexican chocolate apart is the addition of cinnamon and sometimes other spices. It can be difficult to find, though, so we made our own custom blend of cocoa powder, cinnamon, and a touch of cayenne to add to this cookie dough. Form the dough into logs, refrigerate, and then slice-and-bake whenever you’re in the mood for a cookie with a deep, chocolaty flavor and a little kick of spiciness at the end.

7 - Marranitos & Puerquitos (Soft Mexican Gingerbread Pig Shapes Cookies)

One of the recipes I started testing a few nights before, were these Marranitos. Marranitos (or Puerquitos) are these piloncillo cookies shaped like a pig that I wasn’t really a fan of growing up. The panadería across the street from the house I grew up in always made them dry and cakey, and when my uncles would bring fresh pan dulce from their trips to Tijuana there would often be a marranito buried deep in the bag, and those would always snap from how hard and dry they were. I wanted to change a few things for my interpretation, and I really enjoyed how these came out. They’re soft and cakey, but moist, and well spiced!

5 - Coricos ~ Mexican Corn Flour Cookies

Have you ever had Coricos? They are a Mexican Cookie made with Corn Flour. I’m a huge fan of cookies of all kinds, I really don’t discriminate. As I get older though I have to lay off the cookies because it’s too easy for me to get carried away… I have a friend who absolutely goes crazy for these cookies – she LOVES them. When I say LOVES them, I really mean that … she is gluten-free and so they are right up her alley. Not to mention, her husband grew up on them as a kid.

3 - Chewy Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

This recipe is my baby. It’s the first recipe I ever developed myself and it’s the recipe I’m most often asked for. When I ask people what I should bring to their picnic, bake sale, birthday party, the answer is invariably MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE COOKIES. DUH. They are spicy, chewy, chocolatey and just the right size. If you usually just window shop when you look at baking blogs, I encourage you to give these a try. They’re memorable, foolproof and delicious.

2 - Vegan Oven Baked Churros with Chocolate Ganache and Caramel

I decided to whip up one of the most coveted recipes on eds, the vegan oven baked Churros! While churros are typically fried, you can make a fab churro just by baking. If you’re not familiar with churros, don’t be alarmed. I fell into the category as “I’ve never had one”, until I went to Disney World 5 years ago lol. I honestly only saw churros on menus at Mexican restaurants and I typically never order desserts. Needless to say I had never tried them, but boy was I missing out!
