This crisp sugary biscuit is a family recipe from the island of St Michael in the Azores. So simple, and nice to have on hand to go with coffee or tea.
These are a not-too-sweet cake like cookie and I really enjoyed them. I had to use 3 tablespoons of half and half because my dough was a little dry, but that could be a lot of different things other than how the recipe was written. Very good!! I imagine these would be fantastic with coffee and I'll be trying that out in the morning! - 15 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made the first batch with the original 24qty recipe. My guys loved them so much that the next day I found all the ingredients needed to make them on top of the counter. So I went back into the web site and changed the amount for 96. But unfortunately they are coming out with a sour after taste. Can any one help me figure out why? - 23 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really liked this cookie. It tastes just like a cookie my mom makes. It's not too sweet, but very dense, which makes it great with a cup of coffee. My kids liked using the cookie cutters with these cookies, although it did take longer with them helping! - 10 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
