Mexican Wedding Cookies / Polvorones are soft, crumbly, heavy, short bread cookies from Spain. They are often served during mexican wedding menu and thus the name.

It’s the season of baking and I am so happy about it. My daughter loves baking and is eagerly waiting to make these mexican cookies which we had made earlier.

Polvorones are made with different kinds of nuts, it is one of the essentials during Mexican wedding and thus they are called by that name.

They are classic ones which are simply irresistible. Sugar coated, they look so good. You take a bite, they are crunchy and soon melt in the mouth.

I love these Mexican Wedding Cookies / Polvorones as they are tasty, easy to make, eggless, have a lovely texture and love the beautiful sugar coated look.

A few pointers to make good cookies:

  • Always use butter at room temperature. Keep it outside ahead of time.
  • Make sure you are using good ingredients, do not regret later of throwing it.
  • Use proper measurements while baking.
  • Inspite of using proper measurements, you may end up in a disaster. It may be a difference in the oven setting or timing.
  • Do take a proper note of the oven settings as each one is different.
