Spanish Food Ideas?

In my spanish class we are instructed to perform (or videotape) a cooking show. We will have to make the item, then bring it to class and share with the other students.

I am not so much acquainted with spanish food other than tacos and burritos, so i am not sure what to make. I think i saw in here somewhere a recipe for mexican brownies? most people at school know my superb baking skills and probably expect a dessert type thing. but i am open to any suggestions of spanish-type foods, if you have a favorite or something! anything is appreciated!

Edit: Anythng from a spanish speaking country is what I am looking for. Sorry that was not so clear!

Crunchier Sugar Cookies

I have searched through some older posts as well as online, and I can't seem to find any vegan sugar cookies that aren't soft/chewy/puffy. I want crunchier cookies that I can ice, like these: http://www.johnandkristie.com/archives/2005/10/perfect_sugar_c.html. I don't want to use this recipe, because I don't want to use vegan cream cheese. I am trying to figure out how I could make them without the cream cheese. Does anyone have any suggestions or a recipe for crunchier vegan cookies? I tried over-baking a soft cutout cookie recipe, but it didn't do that much. The cookies still puffed up too much to ice. Thanks!
