Mexican shortbread cookies, also known as hojarascas, or pan de polvo, are sweet, crunchy, delicious cookies that our family makes (and eats!) by the dozens. Fond are our memories of bringing these cookies home from the local bakery in Laredo, and always having them out on the table, or in our cookie jars.
Our grain free versions of these nostalgic cookies are thoughtfully baked to perfection, Abuela Approved, and quite possibly the next best thing since the simple pleasure of playing in fallen leaves. But—unlike cookies—we never want to put words in your mouth. Instead, we’ll just tell you that these Grain Free Mexican Shortbread Cookies are made from a lightly sweetened blend of almond flour and a dash of cinnamon.
Siete Family Foods was born when Veronica Garza's family helped her overcome a series of major health challenges. As a Mexican-American family from South Texas, the tacos and fajitas that they used to enjoy on flour and corn tortillas just didn't taste the same on a lettuce leaf! So she began making grain-free tortillas for her family, and they loved them. Veronica knew she had something really special when her Grandma Campos told her that the tortillas tasted better than the homemade flour tortillas she'd made for decades!
