These cookies are a common Mexican Christmas sugar cookie. The thing that makes it a Mexican cookie is the vanilla. Mexican vanilla beans are thicker, smokier and darker than average vanilla beans. They are also very flavorful and fragrant. Vanilla also originated in Mexico so it is very popular to use there.
