Suspiros (Breathless) Recipe

  • 4 cups tapioca starch
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place tapioca flour in a large bowl. Add sugar, butter, eggs, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well until a soft dough forms.
  3. Pinch off a small piece of dough and roll out into a rope the length of a pencil on your work surface; coil tightly into a spiral. Repeat with remaining dough. Arrange spirals on baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked on the bottom but still pale on top, about 15 minutes.
