    Made for Football Pool winner Week 1, congradulation Maryland! Made exactly per the recipe, these are really nice cookies, and if you allow the cookies to cool completely before dipping the second time in the confectioners sugar it holds easily to the cookie. Thank You for a great cookie.

    Really good. I dipped mine in powdered sugar multpiple times becuase the sugar kept melting when the cakes were cooling. They are very crumbly if you break a piece off, so if you take one, plan on eating the whole thing. Even though it is hard to eat just one! Thanks!

    These were very good and authentic. I am told that in Mexico these are called polvorones. I reviewed this for ZWT5.
