Mantecados - Spanish Crumble Cakes

At Christmas, mantecados cookies are common to see in bakeries and homes in Spain. They are very light, crumbly cookies with a delicate flavor of anise. With lots of shortening, these cookies literally melt in your mouth. Serve them with anise liqueur for a special dessert this holiday. Because this recipe makes about 7 dozen cookies, you'll have plenty for yourself and to give away to family and friends.
