Title: Roskette  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Roskette or rosketi are traditional Chamorro cornstarch cookies.


The primary ingredient for roskette is typically corn starch. Other ingredients include flour, sugar, butter or shortening, milk or cream, eggs, baking powder, and vanilla. Some roskette recipes result in a very thick, hard-to-swallow cookie, while others yield a crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth cookie. The taste and texture of a roskette recipe, however, produces a very distinct end result, due primarily to the use of cornstarch.


Roskette dough is historically rolled into a log the size and length of a pencil. The dough is either formed into a coil, or into a pretzel. Some shape the dough into a ball then flatten the dough with the tines of a fork. The cookies are baked on a greased cookie sheet till moderately or lightly browned.
