Ingredients for about 70-75 cookies:

Up to ½ tea cup peeled walnuts

Plain cocoa powder to decorate

In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (including vanilla), stir, then add the lard. Mix directly with your hands until you get a paste. If it seems dry and is more like crumbles than like a dough, moisten with a little light beer.

Shape into balls with the size of a large cherry, hiding a small piece of walnut inside. Align the cookies on a sheet of parchment paper, making sure you leave enough space between them.

To decorate them, put 1 spoon of cocoa in a small cup. Take a thimble, dip it in the cocoa powder and press it gently in the middle of each small biscuit.

Bake the cookies at 180°C and monitor the baking regularly. At the end, they should be lightly golden under but still pale on top.

Stored in a candy or cookie box, they can last 2 to 3 weeks.
