    Kim D.'s Note:

    I found this recipe in a Mexican cooking magazine called "Panaderia Mexicana Tradicional". The recipe was originally written in Spanish and the measurements were in grams. I translated the recipe into English and converted the measurements to accomodate the American kitchen. Living in Texas, we have a lot of Mexican bakeries! I love going into the panaderia by the farmer's market. I love Mexican pastries because they are not too sweet. This cookie is one of my favorites!

      I love these cookies! They are just like polvorones are supposed to taste like. For the reviewer who did not like it, maybe it's the texture that he/she is not used too. I will be making them again this Christmas. Thanks Kim.D!!!

      These are yummy - just like from a Mexican bakery!! They were tasty and had the lovely gritty (polvo means dust in Spanish) taste that I expected. Excellent!! We'll make these again Kim D. :)

      I don't get it. Either something is missing in the recipe or I just didn't like these. They tasted like big dry floury crackers. After the first tray of 6 we threw it all away. I'm sorry.
