Living in the Dominican Republic its impossible to not know what Polvorones are, but for those living outside Dominican Republic, this post goes out to you! They are a delicious almond cookie, that literally breaks apart and crumbles in your mouth. They’ve always been one of our favorite treats, a Dominican party wouldn’t be complete without them. We thought this would be a great idea for our blog, even though its one of our best kept recipes, so the whole world could know about these delicious cookies!
Over the years we’ve tried to make them better by stuffing them, this tutorial the Polvorones are stuffed with chocolate.
For this recipe you will need:
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar or powdered sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup crushed nuts or almonds
Chocolate pieces (optional)
1. Mix the butter in the mixer until creamy, add the confectioner’s sugar or powdered sugar and the vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl mix the sifted flour with baking powder.
3. Add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture and mix until well combined. Add the crushed nuts or almonds
4. Form small 1″ balls in your hands and lay them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes. You can also us chocolate yo give it a little twist of flavor to it, I used Ghirardelli chips and bake the same for 20 minutes.
