    Chef Gorete's Note:

    This is my favorite portuguese cookie. I enjoy the tender crunch and corn flavour of the cookie, and it stays fresh for a long time.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Beat all of the ingredients together except for the two flours. When well beaten, add all of the flour and mix well until blended. Dough should be firm enough to hold its shape when pressed. (Adjust firmness by adding either milk or flour, a little at a time).
    3. 3
      Using a cookie press with a star tip, pipe a rope of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Cut the rope into 5 to 6” lengths, and then shape into an S. (Alternatively, you can make simple drop cookies).
    4. 4
      Bake at 350 F until done, about 15 – 17 minutes and cookies have light colour. Once all of the cookies are baked, pile the cookies on one cookie sheet and return to a 200 F oven for 25 minutes to add crispiness.
