Mexican Wedding Cookies (Polvorones)
Polvorones are soft and very crumbly shortbread cookies which are a very close cousin of the Greek Christmas cookies called Kourabiedes.
Both of the recipes are made with quite large amount of fat, such a butter, margarine or even lard. That makes them almost melt your mouth, soft and crumbly. While making, try not to over work the dough, I use small ice-cream scoop (walnut size) to shape my cookies. Shortbreads should be chilled before baking, so they keep their beautiful round shape after baking.
