Notes

Don't grease cookie pan.
Pre heat oven at 350 F
We don't need Ube halaya in this recipe, which is great, since not all of us have access to it here.
After 12 minutes, cookies will appear soft but it will set when they are cooled in a wire rack.
You can store cookie in a sealed container in a room temperature.
If you can't find taro root in your store, skip it completely. The cookie will taste really good, but it will not look so crinkly.
You can freeze batter for 3 months.
There is no need to refrigerate batter before baking.
