Roscos Navideños are an exclusive Andalusian specialty that is relished in homes across southern Spain during the Christmas season. However, it is very hard to find a recipe for this traditional Christmas treat. Roscos Navideños is made with flour, olive oil, white wine, orange juice, aguardiente, cinnamon and the most important of all with Matalauva or anis seeds. Roscos are round anisette fritters and in Spain the "Roscos" are traditionally flavored with anis. The flavors of Cinnamon and Anis are to me the flavors of Christmas in Europe. Here in German where Cinnamon is called Zimt, they even have cinnamon-flavored chocolates, anis-flavored cookies, different kinds of cookies for that matter. For every changing season, they have a special scent and flavor. This is one of the things I enjoyed while living in Germany. But I also miss our coconut-flavored desserts and Turon with Langka (fried bananas wrapped with jackfruit).
