1) Pre-heat (turn on oven) at 350 F or 175 C 15 minutes before baking.
2) Prepare two cookie sheets lined with bake/parchment papers so cookies will not stick. One plastic 12 to14-inch disposable piping bag (available in baking house ware section of SM Megamall). Snip a 1/2 inch wide hole with scissors when bag is half filled.
3) Beat with a wooden spoon or hand mixer:
1 cup softened Magnolia Gold butter salted
1/ cup granulated sugar (white sugar)
1/2 cup egg whites (about 4 egg whites)
1 tsp. vanilla (note: other flavors like pandan, ube, etc. can be used)
Lastly, add 1 cup all-purpose flour
When blended, place in piping bag. Pipe 2 inches long, 2 inches apart on prepared trays. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until sides are brown. Remove from pans. Cool. Store in cookie jars while warm with a paper napkin at the bottom to prevent spoilage. Makes 80 to 100 pieces.
4) Note: you may pipe into rounds, put choco sprinkles, serve with coffee.
