What’s up with this cookie’s name?
Depending on where you look, it may be referred to as the bizcochito, biscochito or biscocho. There’s a bit of debate over the name of these cookies. In general, it seems that they’re referred to as biscochitos in the northern part of the state, biscochos in the southern part of the state. But wait, that’s not all. In 1989, when New Mexico House Bill 406 declared the bizcochito as New Mexico’s Official State Cookie, there was a battle over how to spell the cookie’s name–biscochito or bizcochito. Several lawmakers got on the House floor to press for the “s” or “z”. Eventually the Senate returned it as bizcochito.
Of course, as one wise biscochito maker says: “it is the taste that gives a biscochito the name, no matter how you wish to say it.”
