Bolachas de Acucar (Azorean Sugar Cookies)
all purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 325F. Lightly coat cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together the cornstarch and sugar. Add the butter and cream together with an electric mixer.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the sugar mixture until a dough forms.
On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into rounds with cookie cutter or inverted glass.
Place cookies on baking sheet. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the oven, until the cookies are done.
Allow cookies to cool for a couple of minutes and remove them to wire rack.
