I was so excited for this month's theme. The Husband was able to find a polvoron form. I decided to make one from my handy The Filipino Cookbook by Reynaldo Alejandro. polvoron has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. I always loved eating it and my favorite was my grandmother's recipe. Unfortunately, I don't have the recipe and I miss it so much. This recipe got close and I even added some pinipig.
3 Cups Sifted Flour
1 Cup Sifted Powdered Milk
3/4 Cup Sifted Sugar
1/2 Pound of Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon of Lemon or Vanilla Extract
1 Cup of Pinipig
Toast the flour in a heavy skillet over a medium heat until golden brown while stiring constantly.
Remove from heat and cool.
While it cooks, toast the pinipig in the skillet.
Add the powdered milk, sugar, melted butter, pinipig, and the extract.
Pack the mixture into the form and press out the little cakes.
Wrap the polvoron in wax paper.
