The New Mexico Legislature adopted the biscochito (bizcochito) as the official state cookie in 1989. This act made New Mexico the first state to have an official state cookie. The biscochito is a small anise-flavored cookie, which was brought to New Mexico by the early Spaniards. The cookie is used during special celebrations, wedding receptions, baptisms, Christmas season, and other holidays. It was chosen to help maintain traditional home-baked cookery. The name biscochito comes from the Spanish word bizcocho, which means “cake.” So, in English, biscochito means “little cake.” The official state cookie recipe is below.
Our Biscochito (or Biscocho) Soap has a fresh baked aroma of sweet, sugary aroma of fresh vanilla beans, with a touch of the spicy black licorice aroma of Anise Essential Oil, the powerful, spicy Cinnamon Essential Oil aroma.
Our soaps never contain phthalates or parabens. Our products are IFRA compliant. Each bar of soap is at least 6 oz. We cut our soap by hand so every bar is different and you may not receive the exact bar shown in the photo. This also means each bar will vary slightly in weight. All products are handmade in small batches so appearance may vary!
To Use: Use this soap as you would any other soap🧼
To Store: Many of us store our soap in the shower where it is moist most of the time. Your soap will last longer if you set it in a dry and ventilated location allowing air to circulate around the whole bar until the next use.
Product ships in biodegradable materials. ♻️ Recycle or compost packaging!🪱
We cannot do refunds, but we can do exchanges!
This is for one bar of soap regardless of what is in the photograph.
We lovingly make our Biscochito soap with Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, and Castor Oil; scent them with fragrances; and color them with mica.
