No holiday season in New Mexico would be complete without the biscochito.
Recipes vary, of course, but you can usually count on a lard or butter base and cinnamon and anise to spice it up.
Rob Hawley, president of Taos Herb Co., hosted his seventh annual biscochito contest Dec. 8 at his store, located at 710 Paseo del Pueblo Sur.
He said the competition was fierce, but three top winners emerged.
The winners were Dolores Anaya, first place; Linda Warning, second place; and Ruby V. Martinez, third place.
