Polvorones (Powder Cakes)

Polvorón de Estepa

More indispensable sweet things for Christmas are Polvorones. (Spoil yourself, it's only once a year!) So, here's a simple recipe for making them.

Ingredients:

500 grams (1 l.b.) of sugar
500 grams (1 l.b.) of lard
1 KG (2 lbs.) of flour
A good pinch of ground cinnamon
The grated rind of a green lemon
A good pinch of ground aniseed

Preparation:

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with the hands until it forms a paste. To make the polverones, take small handfuls of the mixture and make into small ovals, something like cookies. Place the polverones onto a baking tray, greased with butter or lard, and bake them in the oven until golden brown.
