Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F/ 177˚C.

  1. Actually you can buy sweetened condensed coconut milk. I have lactose intolerant family so I make stuff with that instead of sweetened condensed milk.

    Made these for easter. Was on a time crunch and was sharing a kitchen and oven. So so happy with these! Nice and light and crumbly and soft. Threw some vanilla extract in the mix. Going to try citrus next!

  3. I just made these — I love them. I added some almond extract. Tasty little bites.
    The big plus for me is that 2 c of cornstarch have about 6mg of oxalates (kidney stone issue) so 1/48 of that is .125 mg oxalate per cookie – practically 0. Love it!!

    So awful. Not buttery. Pasty. Like cooking jar paste I had in elementary school. So disappointed. I even put some jam on mine. Still inedible, really surprised Emmy said they were good, because there is no way 2cups of cornstarch is good.

    Horrid. Tried two batches. Thought might not have cooked the first batch long enough. Nope second batch was just as dry crumbly and corn starchy as the first. No thanks.

    I love them. Of course they’re “dry”, like shortbread. They’re supposed to Melt in Your Mouth, not be chewy. One crumbly bite and they dissolve. I’ve used different flavorings including rose water, exhotic!

    Grest cookies; thanks for the recipe! Made these for Thanksgiving & they were a hit even though my oven runs hot & I baked them 1-2 minutes too long. Made them again today, added tsp of vanilla, measured 16 oz for each, baked for 8 minutes & they were perfect. Not dry at all, perfect taste & melt in your mouth texture. I may even dip them in my eggnog dip! Going to make them with lime zest tomorrow. They’re addicting!
