Description

The name “mantecadito” comes from the ingredient “manteca,” which translates to shortening. The cookie is basically a shortbread cookie that is made with half butter and half shortening or all shortening. I like the half butter and half shortening recipe because I just love butter. I filled these cookies with guava paste, which becomes soft in the oven and not chewy.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Shortening
  • ½ cups Butter
  • 1 whole Egg Yolk
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Almond Extract
  • 2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Guava Paste, Diced

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Cream sugar, shortening and butter in a large bowl. Mix in egg yolk and almond extract. Blend in the flour a little at a time, until well combined and chunky. Shape a tablespoon of dough into a ball. Repeat with the remaining dough. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your thumb, press down on the cookie. Fill the dimple with about 1 teaspoon of guava paste.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until light golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack.
