Suspiro, or "sigh," is the generic name for these kinds of cookies, which are as light as a sigh. Cudillero is a town in north-western Spain.

I have made many cookies and the recipes were on target, but this one did not work. I agree that 4 cups of flour is too much or an ingredient is missing. They were hard as rocks and had to throw them out.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- powdered sugar
Directions See How It's Made
- Put the butter in a bowl and add the sugar, little by little, beating until the mixture is creamy.
- Blend in the egg and beat until light. Mix the flour and baking powder and blend along with the vanilla into the creamed mixture until a stiff dough forms.
- Knead lightly and divide into 2 parts. Roll each part to make a 2-inch diameter log. Wrap in waxed paper and foil and chill at least 1 hour or up to 2 weeks.
- Cover baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease them.
- Preheat oven to 375°F Cut dough into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place on baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden. Allow to cool on the baking sheets, then dust with powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
- My appologies for skipping a few ingredients.
