This is one of the food I loved when I was growing up in the Philippines. Now I make it with my minions (my kids), they love eating it and making it too! It’s such a fun thing to do and also a fabulous gift for someone.

Homemade Polvoron (sweet butter & flour candy)

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 250g plain flour
  • 160g powdered milk (I use Nido)
  • 130g butter, softened
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50g pinipig or rice crispies (optional)
  • 50 peanut, crushed (optional)
  • polvoron molder (if you don’t have any cookie cutter is good too)
  • squared coloured tissue paper

Instructions

1

Using a wok or a large pan toast the flour and stir continuously until the color turns light brown, turn the heat off then transfer it in a clean bowl and leave it on the side to cool down

2

Once cooled add powdered milk, caster sugar (and pinipig or peanuts) then mix well until all the ingredients are distributed

3

Put the butter in the flour mixture and mix using your hands ensuring that the butter is evenly mix into the flour

4

Scoop some mixture and mold it using your polvoron molder (see tips if you are using a cookie cutter) put it on top of your pre cut coloured tissue paper then wrap making sure it’s tightly sealed

Notes

*If you are using a round cookie cutter place your cutter on top of the coloured tissue paper, add some polvoron mix, using your fingers push the mixture into the cutter then slowly lift the cutter leaving the folded polvoron *When wrapping, put top and bottom sides together then make a fold as close as possible to the polvoron then twist left and right sides to seal it
