So, Miss Lorna tells me that there’s a standard NM Christmas meal — posole, tamales, and biscochitos.
Now, being the faithful Texan that I am, tamales were easy, but I’d never made posole before and GF biscochitos? Wow. Posole is a hominy and pork stew with chiles. It’s usually served with onions and radishes, so that’s what we did. Biscochitos are the most amazing slice of anise-y, cinnamon-y heaven ever and I’m mad about them. Also, I made bear-shaped ones.
That’s right. Bearcochitos. :D
So, I made our supper and they was a huge success. I’m not sharing either recipe, yet, because I’m still playing with them, but I took pictures and I’m refining the biscochito recipe to share soon.
