These are also called Puto Seco. This is a tasty, butter cookie that is complimented with a cup of tea. The cornstarch in the recipe makes them light and crunchy.
Very light and crispy, even our non-filipino friends rave about these. One recommendation, chill the dough before rolling into balls. - 20 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow! I've been looking for this recipe after making it once a while ago. I forgot the name and couldn't find it again. I initially tried it because I was looking for a special recipe to make into a cookie that was similar to those puffy mint candies that you pop in your mouth and they melt into a fine, sweet, minty powder. This recipe worked perfectly! I added 1 tsp of peppermint extract, a tiny bit of pink food color and some crushed candy canes. They were great!!! Thanks for a great recipe and thanks, mizliz, for posting the picture that helped me find it again! - 04 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is such and easy and GREAT tasting recipe! The cookies are so light - they're addictive! I'm glad that I tried it and will definitely make them again! - 13 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
