Corioso or butter cookies is a crunchy pastry made from flour, eggs, lard, milk, sugar, butter, and baking powder. These crispy confections are actually moist when you sink your teeth into it. That's probably because of the butter. Nonetheless it's good for a morning, afternoon, and/or midnight snack.
