My kind of cookie is buttery, with a touch of almond, and simple. That is why whenever I go to Puerto Rico, I return with a few bags of my favorite cookie of all time – polvorones!
What’s a polvoron? You probably know this as a shortbread cookie – yes, I’m sure it all makes sense to you now. Polvorones are a bit dry and crumbly – you take a bite and it’s everywhere. I love the crunch and unbelievably, it isn’t something I bake often enough.
Well the other day I finally did, and I’m sharing my recipe here with you.
