These cookies are very delicate and crumble easy. I have been making these cookies for over 20 years.
I start getting requests before Thanksgiving.

How to Make Pan de Polvo (Mexican cookies)

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine flour and lard, (I use a pastry cutter) add Tablespoon of cinnamon tea (see below)until dough becomes clay-dough like. Approx. 3 Tablespoons… refrigerate dough.
    In Food processor grind 8 cinnamon sticks with sugar until fine, cinnamon will be in bits. Place in a shallow, wide bowl or plate.
  2. Roll out dough,between wax paper, cut with small round cookie cutter or medicine bottle cap, place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375, (cookies should not brown).
    Remove from cookie sheet and put in sugar/cinnamon very gently. Lightly coat cookies and gently place in a container. Cookies will melt in your mouth.
  3. Cinnamon tea----boil 2 cinnamon sticks in 1 cup of water, or microwave for 2minutes in microwavable cup. Let cool before adding to flour/lard mixture.
