  • Serves1 dozen


    • 4 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/3 cup Crisco
    • 2 cups suero (whey) or buttermilk can be used as a substitute


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl mix flour and baking powder. Cut in Crisco until well mixed. Make a well in center of mixture and slowly add suero. Knead dough with your fingers and add suero when necessary. Its all right if the dough is sticky, more flour can be added. But I like it a little bit sticky – the galletas will be flakier.
Knead until smooth then divide dough into 12-14 balls, pat out until about 1 inch thick.

Poke with fork twice and bake on ungreased sheet, bake for 20-23 minutes and then set the oven to broil and bake for 1 additional minute or until golden brown.
