Eddy,I did preheat oven, one sheet in the middle rack, the other right under it to the side of it and after 6 minutes I switched them. That’s what I do with Biscoitos. After 12 min. I looked though glass door of even and neither of them had started to brown..After 20 min. It did but were hard as rocks...Oh well.Think I will stick to Biscoitos they always come out for me..no worries. Keep them coming you and your wife are doing a great job posting them, especially for us that remember most of these recipes from childhood!! God bless you both..

Unfortunately, it didn’t work well for me at all. Don’t think at 350f is correct..didn’t brown not even after 20 minutes..

Sorry to hear that Olivia, did you bake them in the middle rack and did you preheat the oven?
