Cochinitos de Piloncillo

These spice cookies are also known as puerquitos or marranitos in Mexico and are traditionally cut out with pig-shaped cookie cutters. The dough is sweetened with a spice syrup made by simmering the piloncillo, a brown sugar cone, in water with star anise and a cinnamon stick. Piloncillo is a staple ingredient in the Mexican kitchen and is made from unrefined cane juice that’s reduced by boiling then poured into cone-shaped molds to dry.
