What's Cookin' Wednesday: Portuguese Biscoitos (Biscuits)

Biscoitos (sounds like bish-kurts) are delicious little biscuit-cookies. Dunk them in coffee or milk and they'll melt in your mouth. Eat them by themselves and you'll keep sneaking them 'til they're gone. These are a Portuguese delight and I'm a Portuguese girl at heart, despite my new Irish last name!
 
Thank you, Auntie Elaine, for this great recipe!

 
Ingredients
  • 3 C flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter/margarine
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C sugar
 
Directions
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
Beat eggs, butter, sugar and vanilla.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Roll into balls. You may need extra flour to do this (IT'S SO STICKY!)
Break into small balls and shape/roll into circles (like donuts with a hole in the middle).
Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes.
*Brush with beaten egg before baking.

Makes about 3 dozen.
