Available in most bakeries in the country, these shortbread-esque cookies are a common sight in Mexico. In contrast to many American sweets, polovorones are known for their nutty, hearty flavor, which comes from wheat flour. The combination of simple pantry ingredients, food coloring, and cocoa gives them a tender yet slightly crunchy texture and bright tri-color design. In keeping with their namesake (polvorón, which is Spanish for powder or dust), each cookie gets a dusting of granulated sugar fresh out of the oven.
To store these cookies, place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 2 months.
