    Crispy, crumbly and not too sweet. These Mexican Pastelitos are very similar to "polvorones" but without nuts or almonds. <br/>These are very simple traditional cookies, prepared with really simple ingredients and parfumed with cinnamon.<br/>After trying the first one your would like to take the secon one. Then a third one and so on.
