'Tis the season for this decadent quartet of customary Spanish Christmas cookies. Bring a little bit of Spain to your house or gift to friends, colleagues or family. This handpicked surtido of cookies includes four of Spain’s most traditional holiday sweets.

These artisan cookies are crafted by Aromas de Medina, a family-owned company in Medina Sidonia, Spain. Their recipes have been handed down for generations and they pride themselves on superior ingredients and traditional Spanish products.

Alfajor Navideño (4 pieces)
A mini version of the beloved Alfajor de Medina cake, this honey and almond spice cookie tastes like Christmas morning. Hazelnuts and almonds are ground and mixed with spices, then finished with powdered sugar to create subtle hints reminiscent of a cinnamon bun or hot apple cider. Ideal for nibbling with a cup of hot tea or coffee while the youngsters tear through stockings.

Roscos de Vino (6 pieces)
Resembling mini-donuts, these ring-shaped cookies have been a holiday favorite for centuries in Spain. Baked from a generations-old, family recipe, roscos de vino cookies combine just the right amount of sweetness with a touch of muscatel wine, creating festive fare for party platters or treats for indulging in with cocoa or a glass of dry wine.

Mantecado Almendra (3 pieces)
These customary Christmas shortbreads combine cinnamon, flour, sugar and extra virgin olive oil to create a crumbly, rich cookie that graces kitchens and bakeries across Spain. Serve after a large holiday meal for a small, sweet finale. Dunk in a glass of tea by the fireplace or nibble on with a generous glass of red wine after a long day of holiday shopping.

Polvorón Almendras (3 pieces)
This Spanish Christmas cookie pairs well with morning coffee or afternoon tea. These varieties are a lighter version of more traditional polvorón almendras due to their creation with olive oil in lieu of lard. The airier, sweet taste is grounded with a mix of toasted, crunchy almonds, leaving a hint of nuttiness on the palate.
