"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Very light and crispy, even our non-filipino friends rave about these. One recommendation, chill the dough before rolling into balls.
I think the recipe uses too much cornstarch. After bitting into one it taste like a ball of butter and cornstarch. I reccomend not making this recipe.
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!
This is such and easy and GREAT tasting recipe! The cookies are so light - they're addictive! I'm glad that I tried it and will definitely make them again!
I learned to make these when i was in grade school but i lost my recipe. I am glad to find this. The cookies are like the way i remembered them: they are light and crunchy, and it's hard to stop eating them!
My daughter needed a Philippine recipe for a potluck for Girl Scouts today. We made them, and at first I was a little skeptical. They turned out beautifully!
These were easy to make and delicious. I made them for my family to give them a taste of home..... I got thumbs up all round, even from none Filo relatives!
These cookies are special. I couldn´t form the balls, since the batter was runny. I froze them but they were still liquid! So I put them in little molds. Then I covered them with chocolate. Great!
