It’s time for us to travel around the world and this month we have landed in Brazil. I have really enjoyed introducing my kids to different food through Around the World in 12 Dishes. What an adventure we have had. I knew immediately that if we were going to be exploring Brazil then we had to learn about the Amazon River. When I was a kid I loved watching Jacques Cousteau floating down the Amazon and telling the world all about the fish and wildlife he found. Those short movies are burned in my memory. I loved Jacques!
8. Bake for 7-10 minutes..until edges are golden brown.
Our first batch was a melted mess and my daughter said “Do not put pictures of these cookies on your blog!” I determined that we needed a bit more cornstarch in the dough, so we kneaded a bit more in. The next batch was perfect. The cornstarch works as a thickener in the cookie. The cookies were delicious. My daughter was extremely proud of her work. It is always wonderful to show my girls how just a few ingredients can make something so delicious.
That does look yummy
This looks so easy! I didn’t know they had maizena in Brazil- we use that for Mexican cooking all the time:). I will definitely try these with my kids!

Interesting, never thought of cornstarch as a cooking ingredient, more just as a sauce thickener. What do they taste like? Thanks for joining in again and glad you had fun 🙂
