This recipe for simple biscuit cookies is one of my favorites. They’re perfect for breakfast or a snack any time of the day. Enjoy them!

Portuguese Biscuit Cookies:


1 cup sugar

1/2 cup olive oil

2 eggs

3 cups of flour

1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

2 teaspoons of whiskey (optional)

1/2 of a lemon zest

1 egg yolk for brushing tops

sugar for dusting



In a large bowl beat the eggs and sugar until frothy. Add the milk, lemon zest, oil, whiskey and cinnamon. Beat until well incorporated.

Add the baking soda and then the flour about 1 cup at a time until the batter becomes like cookie dough.

Form the batter into round balls about 2 inches wide and place on greased cookie sheet. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with a little sugar. Cook at 350 degrees until they turn golden brown. Release one cookie to check the bottom to be sure they don’t overcook after a few minutes. Let cool slightly and sprinkle on more sugar.
