Your cookies look so adorable and delicious. Mine on the other hand, were pretty looking but they didn’t taste very good. I guess I’ll have to try again.

First time seeing this video. I appreciate since i love mantecaditos but never learned to make them. The sprinkles in PR are known as grajeas! Comes in several sizes. These tasted like the ones id buy from a bakery and as i remember as a child! Love them! Is it possible to incorporate so finely chopped almonds in the recipe? I believe i did have it once like that.

OK....I am in pain. Because I looove these cookies. By watching you eating them my mouth is all water. Thanks for such a simple and fantastic receipt. Running to the market for some vanilla and almond. Every time I visit my hometown in Puerto Rico....I run to our local bakery for some of these. Now...allow me to PR they are kinda like a deeper yellow color. What do we do for that..some frosting colorants? Thanks for sharing !!!!! :-).

Que ricos..yo los hacia mucho cuando aprendi en el salon de economia domestica,,que me dio un fiebre de hornear.....escoji ver el video por si acaso se me habia olvidado algun detalle.pero veo que no.,Gracias de todos modos .a mi esposo tampoco le gusta la guava pero a mi que nosotras las mujeres somos mas dulces que ellos,por algo Dios dijo en su Palabra que somos el vaso mas debil..digo en algunas cosas porque por algo no puso al hombre a dar a luz.y ya traimos nuestro propio dulce en el paquete y nos endulzamos mas cuando horneamos nuestros Postres..Boricuas al fin. Dios la continue Bendiciendo and stay sweet.

Hi Aida, i have the fondest memories making these with my mom as a kid, but she used cinnamon for the middle and it was my job to press down & add the cinnamon!! I have subscribed to your channel great recipes!!

Vilma Vega

Hi Aida! I'm writing to you in desperation here. I've tried to make these mantecaditos twice already and both times they just flattened on me. They look like regular flat cookies with sprinkles on it. The second time I made them smaller thinking, that perhaps, they were too dense. But the only difference was that they cooked faster that's all. They were baked @350 for 12 minutes and I used 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 stick of butter (room temp), 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 a cup of Crisco (room temp), and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (I don't like the almond extract though).  I used wax paper on the cookie sheet just like you did and put some sprinkles on them.. Dear since yours look the way they're supposed to look, could you help me figure out what in the world am I doing wrong here?? I would love for my mantecaditos to look like mantecaditos and not like regular flat cookies. I made them once so many years ago for home ec. I remember they came out ok, because I got and A for it, but can't remember that recipe, the one I used sounded familiar to me.  I'm glad my teacher wasn't in my kitchen, I would have gotten a big fat F!! Please help sweetie!!
