Sequilhos de coco
(Coconut and Cornstarch Cookies)

This is my second favorite cookie's fabulous!

4 cups cornstarch

2 oz freshly grated coconut

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 egg

1 pinch salt

1 1/2 cup tub margarine

Preheat oven to 375 F. Sift together cornstarch and sugar. Add coconut, salt, egg and margarine. Mix with your fingertips to form a dough ball. Roll dough into 2-inch cylinder. Cut into 1 inch slices to form cookies. Place cookies on greased cookie sheet. Use the tines of a fork to make grooves on the top of the cookies. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool completely and keep in a tightly closed tin.
