Polvorones Recipe: Delicious Spanish Christmas Cookies
Today David shares his delicious polvorones recipe for some of the most popular Spanish Christmas cookies. With the holidays right around the corner, this is the perfect new cookie to try!
Spanish people love sugar. It was one of the first things I noticed when I moved to Spain! Every morning at the University of Seville, my fellow classmates would put as many as three sugars in their coffee as I looked on aghast.
So, when the holidays arrive, there’s no shortage of special sweet treats to start celebrating the festive season!
Powdery, almondy… everything I want in a Christmas cookie!One of my favorite things to eat at Christmas in Spain is polvorones. These are traditional holiday cookies, made from almonds and with a shortbread-like texture. The word polvo means powder in Spanish, and these cookies will crumble to dust in your mouth when you eat them! But strictly speaking, they’re named after the generous dusting of powdered sugar on top.
