Description

Although you can certainly get Christmas-decorated sugar cookies at El Bolillo, where they’ll make you any cookie, cake, or pan dulce you can imagine, the specialties here at Christmas are the cinnamon-laced hojarascas (better known in English as “Mexican wedding cookies”) and the snowy, powdered sugar–topped polvorónes. And even though they’re not Christmas cookies, we love El Bolillo’s soft, gingerbread-like marranitos in the shape of little piglets.
