You never have to choose between cookies or conchas ever again but you will have to decide if you should even eat these beautiful pastries.

Created by artist Alicia Becerra, or AliciasDelicias as she’s known online, these amazing cookies resemble iconic symbols in Mexican culture like the Flor de Pascua, concha, and even Frida Kahlo. A self-described “passionate baker” since her childhood, she says, “I’ve always had a passion for my culture since I was a kid,” but it was in 2014 that she was able to mix her passion for baking and her heritage.

She was baking a Pan Dulce set of cookies for her own birthday when she became inspired to create more Mexican-inspired cookies. And thus, #Mexicookies were born.

This San Diego based artist has been building her cookie business for the past five years. If you’re craving these cookies like we are, check out her website to find out more about how you can make an order. She accepts custom orders, and that’s still not the best part of it all.

She has online sales during special holidays, and her next one is right in time for Easter. If you have any questions about the cookies or just want to get your eye-candy fix, follow her Instagram. As she says, “This is my art, and it’s edible!”

Other unique shapes include tamales, churros, and La Virgen de la Guadalupe, to name a few.
