Mexican Wedding Cookies / Polvorones are soft, crumbly, heavy, short bread cookies from Spain. They are often served during mexican wedding menu and thus the name.

It’s the season of baking and I am so happy about it. My daughter loves baking and is eagerly waiting to make these mexican cookies which we had made earlier.

Polvorones are made with different kinds of nuts, it is one of the essentials during Mexican wedding and thus they are called by that name.

They are classic ones which are simply irresistible. Sugar coated, they look so good. You take a bite, they are crunchy and soon melt in the mouth.

I love these Mexican Wedding Cookies / Polvorones as they are tasty, easy to make, eggless, have a lovely texture and love the beautiful sugar coated look.

A few pointers to make good cookies:

  • Always use butter at room temperature. Keep it outside ahead of time.
  • Make sure you are using good ingredients, do not regret later of throwing it.
  • Use proper measurements while baking.
  • Inspite of using proper measurements, you may end up in a disaster. It may be a difference in the oven setting or timing.
  • Do take a proper note of the oven settings as each one is different.

 

The ingredients that you need are:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2.25 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • sugar for coating

Method:

  1. Take butter and sugar in a bowl and whip them together until they are well incorporated and smooth in texture.
  2. Add vanilla essence and salt to it.
  3. Slowly, add the flour in two batches to it.
  4. Mix it well.
  5. Fold the nuts into it.
  6. Take small ball of it and make it into small circle.
  7. Take a baking tray, put a sheet over it.
  8. Line the cookies on a sheet.
  9. Pre-heat the oven at 170 degree centigrade.
  10. Bake for five to ten minutes.
  11. Once they are golden in color, remove and coat them in the powdered sugar and put them on the rack again to cool.
  12. Serve when cool for the crumbly texture.

Take a note:

  • You may reduce the quantity of walnuts if needed.
  • Pecans and walnuts are usually added to it. You may add any other nut to it.
  • A little bit of cinnamon powder may be added to the castor sugar while dusting them.
  • Butter should be at room temperature.
