Polvorones de Canele - Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Pin It


Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!  I had plans to make a unique dessert to celebrate, however after having four sick kids at home this week, my plans had to change.  I needed to make something that didn't require a lot of time and this recipe definitely doesn't.  These cookies taste like shortbread and snicker doodles rolled into one!  They melt in your mouth and taste delicious.  I look forward to making these a lot more!

Ingredients are as follows:

1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 C butter (no substitutes), softened
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C flour 

1 Tbsp. granulated sugar 


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Mix together the powdered sugar and cinnamon; set aside.


Cream together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.


Add the cinnamon, salt and flour.  Mix until incorporated.


Take a spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball.


Roll into the powdered sugar/cinnamon mixture.


Place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake for 16-18 minutes; until golden brown around the edges.


I had some leftover powdered sugar mixture (and I hate to waste) so I stirred in a tablespoon of granulated sugar and rolled the warm cookies into it.


Take a bite and enjoy!
