Nutritive Cookies - Farinha Torrada from Sesimbra Village

December 1, 2013

Author Notes: This is a very old recipe from Sesimbra village. Fishermen used to take with them these cookies when they were several days on the sea.
These are dry cookies and very caloric, so they could survive for a long time.
