My first job was in a bakery, I was 16 years old. It was family own. Almost all my cousins worked there at some point or another. Some of my most memorable cookies are the grajeas, some people know then as mantecaditos. For others sprinkle cookies will do. Today’s post is all about these fall sprinkle grajeas or mantecaditos de Otoño.
The beauty of these cookies is its versatility. Not in the cookie dough, but in the topping. There are dozens of sprinkle colors available and the combinations are endless. For these Fall season I got together a combination of orange and yellow sprinkles and topped others with beautiful orange sugar crystals. Beautiful and delicious.
