ingredients

directions

  • Line cookie sheets with parchment or foil.
  • Set racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  • Stir the flour and cinnamon together and set aside.
  • Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer that has a paddle attachment until soft and light, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating smooth after each addition.
  • By hand, use a rubber spatula to stir in the flour mixture.
  • Scape the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and fold the dough over onto itself 2 or 3 times until it's smooth.
  • Roll the dough into a cylinder and divide it into 6 equal pieces.
  • Cut each of the 6 pieces of dough in half, then in half again, making 24 pieces of dough in total.
  • Roll one piece of dough into a rope about 20 inches long and join the ends to make it a circle.
  • Place the circle on one of the prepared pans and puch into a frown or inch worm shape(still with space in the middle), then just push the dough in at random spots making an irregular shape to crinkle it.
  • Continue with the remaining pieces of dough, placing 9 on each pan.
  • Bake the raivas until they are slightly puffed, deep golden, and firm when pressed with a fingertip, about 12-15 minutes.(Change the position of pand from upper to lower rack at least once during baking).
  • Slide the papers from the pans to racks, to cool the cookies.
  • Store in a container for up to a week.

    Meaning "rabies" in portuguese, raivas are a fun little cookie. Their sturdy texture is good for dunking in milk or coffee. I would add a pinch of salt to this recipe. Use real butter, not margarine, and the good cinammon.

    I had problems with the instructions, esp. point 11 and 12 so i cutted them out and made them heart shaped. They are good but something, which I do not know what is, is missing. Good, solid cookies though, nice munchies. Made for ZWT5
