Polvorones!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 9:59 pm

So, school’s gonna be out soon.  Just one more week and two, weird floating days in the middle of the week (we get Memorial Day off).  And tomorrow, we’re gonna have una fiesta en la clase de espanol! That’s a party in Spanish class for all you who took/are taking French ;).

In honor of this party i made polvorones which mean dust cookies (i think) in Spanish.  They’re super fragile, but delish.  Instead of putting powdered sugar all over them, i put cinnamon sugar all over them because, alas, we don’t have any powdered sugar. Sad, i know.

I should really consider a new camera...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Polvorones:
 
— 1 cup of coconut oil (a whole lotta saturated fat ;))
— 2/3 cup of sugar
— 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
— 1 and 1/2 cup of flour ( i used whole wheat)
— 1/2 teaspoon of salt
— 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (divided)
— another 1/3 cup of sugar
— 1/4 cup of vegan chocolate chips *i used chocolate chunks ;)*
 
Steps:
1. You know the drill. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a cookie pan.
2. Mix the oil and sugar and slowly add the vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
4. Slowly add in the dry flour into the wet ingrediants until a stiff dough is formed.  Then, fold in the chocolate.
5. Mix the 1/3 cup of sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
6. Finally, roll the dough into little balls and roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar.
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes and enjoy 🙂
 
I quite like them, though they are very VERY fragile.  Hence the name being drived from polvo (dust).  If you want, you can try a gluten-free flour, but idk about the results.  I would like to know about that because me and my mom are going gluten free for two weeks this summer to see if it helps our digestive woes, her skin issues, and my– erm– monthly problems.  My mom thinks that gluten is the problem, so hey, why not give it a try.  We may be gluten sensitive :).  So i’ll post some coolio gluten-free recipes.
Well, some nice cool tea is calling my name as well as the cool side of the pillow (it’s like 80 degrees now). 
See you 😉
