Polvorones de Canele
Mexican Cinnamon Cookies
Who doesn’t love vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and most importantly, COOKIES? This recipe uses those ingredients to create one heck of a Mexican-style cookie. They are soft and light and delicious. “Polvorones de Canele” has been a traditional dessert choice in the Mexican culture for many years. These yummy cookies are served at weddings, parties, and special events.
I must say the fact that this recipe is simple yet overly appetizing could mean a new tradition is underway. These can easily be made on a relaxing Saturday night added with some hot coffee and/or milk and a good movie. VOILA, the perfect night! Who needs ice cream? Well, you could pair these delightful little treats with ice cream if you were feeling dangerous! Be careful though, it may create a new addition to your Saturday nights! Curl up with a good book and your new faves (these cookies) and forget about the rest! Perfect. Call your girlfriends and invite them over for a movie night, add these little treasures on a tray with some wine and you have just become the best party host ever. Genius! The possibilities are endless with these cookies.
Now I am hungry and craving these cookies. The cinnamon and sugar mixture is simply divine. It gives the cookies that addicting flavor but not too much to where you only want just one. Maybe we should rename these to Dangerously Delicious Cookies? Anyway, Mi Huerta is excited to share this recipe and we know you are going to love it. Get the kitchen ready and don’t forget to grab the one and ONLY Mi Huerta Mexican Vanilla Extract. Our authentic vanilla is essential to making this recipe as good as it is.
