The Molasses Cookie mix is a great way to create Puerquitos (or cochinos as they are called in some Mexican-American communities), also known as 'Gingerbread Pigs' although they don't actually have ginger in them. In fact, traditional Puerquitos get their delicious spicy-brown goodness from molasses, which is already included in this mix for the ultimate convenience. The cookies can be described as a cross between a cookie and a sweet roll.
These cutout cookies puff when you bake them and have a fluffy texture. They are typically finished with an egg-wash or egg-wash alternative such as Sunset Glaze.
