Spiked Cookies

These are often referred to as Spiked Corn Cookies. In Portuguese they are called Espigas de Mihlo and they are delicious.  There are so many different versions of this recipe. This one found on the Food Network calls for wheat-based flour in the recipe. That is not how my Portuguese Mama makes these delicious cookies. It is all about white corn flour. It is not found in our local grocery store. Instead, we find white corn flour at the Portuguese or East Indian speciality markets. No wheat flour in these babies.

Filling up the glass cookie jar for later.  

This is a hand made cookie press made especially for these cookies. It came from Portugal. Here in North America you can use a pastry bag with a star shaped attachment to make these cookies.  

They are perfect dunking cookies.  

Happy Eats!
