This recipe, from Gastrofotonomia blogger Manny Rodriguez, appeared in our 2012 Cookie Advent Calendar. Manny says: "Torticas de Moron are a traditional shortbread cookie from the city of Moron in central Cuba, and I've never met a Cuban that doesn't like them. I make my version with cream cheese and guava and a little sprinkle of sea salt on top that makes it very unauthentic, but yummy."
