"These are also called Puto Seco. This is a tasty, butter cookie that is complimented with a cup of tea. The cornstarch in the recipe makes them light and crunchy."

Very light and crispy, even our non-filipino friends rave about these. One recommendation, chill the dough before rolling into balls.

Wow! I've been looking for this recipe after making it once a while ago. I forgot the name and couldn't find it again. I initially tried it because I was looking for a special recipe to make into a cookie that was similar to those puffy mint candies that you pop in your mouth and they melt into a fine, sweet, minty powder. This recipe worked perfectly! I added 1 tsp of peppermint extract, a tiny bit of pink food color and some crushed candy canes. They were great!!! Thanks for a great recipe and thanks, mizliz, for posting the picture that helped me find it again!
