abuelita’s cemita

16 Mar

The recipe calls for 4 kinds of flour. I remember using harina de arroz, but am unsure exactly what she means by the other types of flour.

1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups wheat flour (whole wheat?)
1 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cubes margarine
1 1/4 cups Crisco shortening
3 eggs
1 1/2 c sugar

Preheat oven to 375′

Sift flours and baking powder together. Put flour in a large mixing bowl. Cut up shortening and margarine with pastry blender. Add sugar and cinnamon. Mix well. Add eggs, one at a time until all flour is moistened. If needed to hold together, sprinkle a little cold water. Blend with pastry blender and use hands to make a ball (can’t read some of the directions). Divide in half and spread over 2 greased cookie sheets with your hands or use a rolling pin lightly, then press with your hands and cut up on sheet with pizza cutter or other into diamonds or (rest? and …) shape cookies. You may sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top (optional).

Bake ina pre heated oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. cut again while warm and separate.
