I haven't had this in years. These Binangkal or Laughing Cookies were one of my mom's favorits. She actually made them pretty good.
This was a half batch and a half batch too much. I only wanted a couple.
So here goes there recipe:
1 1/2 cup of All Purpose Flour
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
1 bowl of White Sesame Seeds
1 medium cookie scooper
Mix all the above ingredients into a soft ball you'll know by the texture don't overwork it.
I use the cookie scooper to get even balls, roll the dough into a ball rub some oil around the ball
and roll into the sesame seeds place on pan and let rest 15 minutes.
While you are rolling the dough balls, heat oil in a medium pan with canola oil to 325 degrees
cook only a few at a time and use a fork to flip to golden brown. Don't bring the heat up too high or the inside will not cook. Voila, enjoy!!!
