Sequilhos Cookies

Any time is the time to eat some cookies ... 
especially if they are homemade.
At breakfast, afternoon or when you want to, some sequilhos with coffee or tea is a delight.

2 cups corn starch
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsalted butter

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, or use the multi-processor.
When the dough is uniform, make little balls and lightly press with a fork.
Place cookies on a greased (if you prefer, line with parchment paper) and bake in preheated oven 
at 180°C / 350°F.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the bottom is lightly golden.

MATILDE'S TRICKS: Always use the ingredients at room temperature.

I used the Cookie Press to give a different format to my cookies.
