    Polvorones (Sweet Almond Cookies)

    Polvorones are a softer, cake-like version of a sand tart with an intense almond flavor and a generous dusting of powdered sugar. A quick pro tip: make sure to grind the almonds in food processor to get a fine cookie crumble. 


    Ingredients
    1/2
    cup
    almonds
    1
    can
    sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
    2
    eggs
    3/4
    cup
    unsalted butter, at room temperature
    3
    cups
    all-purpose flour
    1
    tablespoon
    baking powder
    *
    confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
    Directions
    Preheat the oven at 390°F.
    In a food processor, pulse the almonds until fine.
    In a stand-alone mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine sweetened condensed milk, eggs, and almonds, beating at medium speed.
    Add the butter to the mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, beating at medium speed until the ingredients are combined. The mixture will have small bits of butter throughout.
    Add the flour, 1 cup at a time, beating at low speed.
    Add the baking powder and beat at low speed until combined. The dough will have a sticky consistency.
    With some flour in the palm of your hands, pinch a portion of dough and roll it between your palms to form a ball the size of a golf ball.
    Place the ball on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough, leaving a couple of inches between each cookie.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. The cookies will crack slightly on the top.
    Insert a toothpick within the cracks to test for doneness. If the cookie is done, the toothpick will come out clean.
    While still warm, roll the cookies in a generous amount of confectioners’ sugar. Serve.
