Polvorones: #CreativeCookieExchange



I just joined a baking group called "Creative Cookie Exchange". A group of dedicated cookie bakers. Every month this group is given a theme for our monthly cookie bake, we post on Tuesday following the 15th of each month. 
This months theme is Cinnamon! Awhile back ago I came across this recipe while I was searching for the Ultimate Polvoron recipe. I have made these in the past and while pleased with previous recipes it wasn't exactly what I was searching for. I wanted a more authentic cookie recipe. 


Thank goodness I came across "Mexico in my Kitchen"! Her recipe was a great success! My quest is over, I can rest assure no other recipe can beat the authenticity of this one. 
Keeping in mind our theme for the month I tweaked the recipe by adding 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and decreasing the vanilla to 1 teaspoon, and omitting the zest. I gave them a dusting of powdered sugar after they were completely cooled. 
For the recipe please visit "Mexico in my Kitchen". 

Are we the only ones who start craving cinnamon when the weather gets colder? We can’t be! And we are talking anything sold under the word cinnamon--cassia, “true Cinnamon”, Ceylon Cinnamon, Vietnamese Cinnamon--if it is sold as cinnamon it is what we want! Check out all of our cinnamon cookies below! Hint: A lot of them could be used for your holiday cookie table! You can also use us as a great resource for cookie recipes. Be sure to check out our Pinterest Board and our monthly posts (you can find all of them here at The Spiced Life). You will be able to find them the first Tuesday after the 15th of each month! Also, if you are looking for inspiration to get in the kitchen and start baking, check out what all of the hosting bloggers have made:
