Holiday Sweets Across the USA-- Part 1: Biscochitos, Black Walnut Cake & Bourbon Balls
From the December 10, 2017, Parade Magazine.
Some of those goodies found around the the country.
BISCOCHITOS-- New Mexico
State cookie and also a Christmastime favorite. Originally brought to area by Spanish settlers, the crisp cookie is prized for its distinct anise flavor.
BLACK WALNUT CAKE-- Missouri
Black walnuts are harvested in Missouri in the fall, which means they turn up in all manner of holiday treats, from cakes to fudge and brownies.
BOURBON BALLS-- Kentucky
These boozy, no-bake confections are a Kentuckian riff on chocolate truffles. Bourbon, Kentucky, go figure.
