These crunchy, delicious butter cookies are pure goodness, still made using a recipe from 1924. Rich and light at the same time, they are the perfect cookie for tea or coffee. The cigarrillos' distinctive shape is formed when warm, just-out-of-the-oven cookies, are rolled by hand. Once they are cooled, they take on this crisp, perfectly crunchy shape!
Casa Ecieza has made these famous cookies in Tolosa since 1924 when Luís María Eceiza created them in his Pastelería Eceiza pastry shop. As word spread across the Basque region of this exceptional cookie, Eceiza opened a small factory. To this day the same recipe is used to make this classic sweet.
Our favorite part of the cookie is the browned edges, where the sugar is slightly caramelized lending each bite a scrumptious level of flavor.
About 18 cookies per tin.
