Gabriela's recipes - Polvorones

And here is the recipe for the delicious little Mexican cookies that Gabriela served up as part of her dessert. Seen below being enjoyed by Leonie...



225 grams of butter

1 cup of Pecans

2 cups of flour

2 Tablespoons of confectionary sugar

2 Tablespoons of vanilla


Leave the butter out for half an hour, until it’s soft.

Finely chop the pecans

Mix everything together in a bowl with your hands

Once the ingredients have been mixed together thoroughly, put a bit of flour on your hands and form about 25 little dome shaped mounds from the mixture.

Put on a non-stick baking tray or an Exopat, also called a SILPAT (it’s a non-stick baking mat of joy!)

Put in the oven on 360 degrees F/180 degrees C for about 25 minutes.

Once cooked (they do not increase in size much), leave to cool.

Once cooled, roll them in confectionary sugar until they are covered on all sides.

Estan lista para comer! Que bueno.
