The wonderful smell of Biscoitos fills the air in my home as I just pulled the last batch out of the oven.These are great tasting biscoitos however a lot fluffier texture then I've ever eaten. I am use to a more dense, crisp biscoitos. My Mother in law originally from Sao Miguel Portugal made these by using the same ingredients however only using 1 1/2 TB of BP. In addition i used a tsp of dough which I rolled into a ball then formed into rings. I did try your amount first of 2 TB of dough however they were huge. I reduced the amount to a tsp and baked for 10 minutes on parchment paper instead of greasing a cookie sheet. It yielded 50 biscoitos. My MIL would also add a 1/8 tsp of almond extract for a variation to this recipe. Thanks for posting it Krystal-Belle!
These are just like my grandma's from Santa Maria, Acores. Our family loves them!
I made them for a cookie exchange party and everyone loved them I had to print up the recipe and give it everyone. I am also making a third batch for my fiance he is from Azores. I was told that taste just like his mom's. Thanks alot Kemerley
