Polvoron



Polvoron Recipe And Cooking Instruction

Polvoron is really popular in the Philippines, especially during Christmas. A number of local variants on the traditional polvorón recipe have been made. These include polvorón with casuy (cashew), polvorón with pinipig (beaten young green rice), and even strawberry polvorón and cookies-and-cream polvorón.


Polvoron is powdered milk candy, made of flour, sugar butter and powdered milk. The flour is toasted, all the ingredients are mixed and shaped into round or oval-shaped molds. It is believe that making polvoron started during the American occupation to use up the huge amount of powdered milk brought in by the Americans.

Polvoron Cooking Instruction - How To Make Polvoron:

1). On a pan, toast flour in a moderate heat for about 15 minutes, or until light brown, stir constantly to avoid burning.

2). Remove the pan and transfer the mixture on a big bowl.

3). Add the powdered milk, toss for another 3-4 minutes.

4). Add sugar and melted butter. Mix well.

5). Fill the mold with the mixture, press it hard by using a spoon, then release it, if it is still too loose, add more butter or olive oil. Make sure that you could pick up the polvoron without it crumbling straight away.

I remember making polvoron back when I was younger and then would sell them during our annual cooking fair in school. It's a definite crowd pleaser and a great treat to sell since you don't have to spend too much on the ingredients.
