Polvorones Rosas (The pink ones)

I'm back from a very lovely vacation. If you would like to see highlights from our vacation click over to the Hola page I will be posting some of our adventures there. I'm very excited to get back to making videos. Today's video perhaps could be my most requested recipe I have ever had. It seems like everyone is dying to know how to make these. I know that everyone will be happy to see how easy these are to whip up. A month or so ago I added a quick responses in the comment box for polvorones hoping to help those of you interested in making these, but I still kept getting the questions. My kids have been making these all summer every Tuesday to sell at their neighborhood bake sale. I can't tell you how many times I have put off making this video for lack of time when we were hurrying to make them on Tuesday mornings.

I think by the time we finish with this website all of you will be well on your way to opening your own Mexican Bakery. Enjoy these yummy cookies!
