Hurray for this month's Kulinarya challenge... Polvoron!!!
This sweet and uberly easy treat is very close to my heart as I have been making these since elementary school! I used to sell these together with other delightful Filipino goodies such as yema (dulce de leche), cheese sticks and ube(purple yam) candies. So when I knew that this will be for April's challenge, my first reaction was "oh yeah!!!
Now, Polvoron comes in many variations. The classic which doesn't have any add-ons and mainly consists of four ingredients- toasted flour, butter, sugar and powdered milk. Other flavored variations include cookies and cream, pinipig, cashew, chocolate and durian. Yes, durian polvoron which is obviously native here in Davao City as we have quiet an all-year round harvest of durian, geezzz you have to make durian flavored with just about anything ei! =)
I don't have any written recipe for this as it is super easy, even my toddler can do it, but of course I won't let him just yet as it involves some cooking in the stove.
My recipe is 1:1:.5:.5, super easy to remember right?
Some said it's better than Goldilocks, so try it yourself if you share the same verdict, and of course, don't forget to let me know. =)
Instead of using one type of powdered milk, I combined skim milk and buttermilk which made it more creamier.
