Personal Notes:
In the Navas family cookbook recipes similar to this are in there about 5 times. I called Auntie Tida to figure out which recipe would be the best one for the book and she told me this one (after correcting the 17.5 cups of flour down by one-half). Uncle Andrew loved these cookies and would make a batch every so often and hide them so he could have a few each day. They're not too sweet - like a Puerto Rican Biscotti.
