Polvoron Recipe (Filipino Shortbread)

 Made these easy treats for my kids.  In one condition.  They have to help me shape the cookies.  These shortbread are not your typical shortbread.  The dough is fairly dry with roasted flour, powdered milk, sugar, and butter.  The butter is the key component for shaping the shortbread.  A polvoron mold is used to shape the shortbread ( metal contraptions seen in the image above).  I recently saw Chef Greggy Soriano use modern moon cake presses to make polvoron blossoms.  Moon cake presses are far more decorative than the conventional molds.  They came in different fancy intricate fun designs.  Check it out at Amazon.ca
