I am currently working on a recipe for biscochitos for the holidays. I will post my final outcome in a couple of days, but here's what I've got going so far:


1 1/2 cups almond flour

1/4 teaspoon salt 

2 Tablespoons sugar equivalent - dry or drop sweetener of your choice (i.e. 12 drops liquid stevia, 2 T honey, 1/4 teaspoon granular stevia - choose one, not all three... or use your own sweenener to taste)

4 tablespoons butter, softened 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla 

2 egg whites

1/2 teaspoon anise seed

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Roll into scant teaspoon sized balls and place onto parchment paper 2-3" apart. Lay another parchment paper over top and flatten the balls very thin (1/8") with the bottom of a glass or a rolling pin. Remove top layer of parchment carefully then bake 325 degrees for 15-20 until nice and golden. Let cool and remove from parchment. 

These aren't perfected yet. I'm still experimenting, but this will give you a place to start from if you want to experiment yourself. I found them to be a nice texture if not a little dry, but very similar to traditional biscochitos. Leaf lard is traditional, but I haven't tried that in this recipe yet either. The butter works well with the almond meal so far.

You could take something like this and adjust the flavorings to get what you want.

I'm guessing that a biscochito is very similar to an Italian Biscotti. Google "Paleo Biscotti" and many recipes come up.
