I've been itching to make some polboron (like short cake maybe) for years and last week I finally cooked some. What happen was my aunt went back to the Philippines last month and I asked her to buy me some polboron mold :-). So last week she came back from the Philippines and guess what... I got my polboron mold. Thanks a lot to her!
Anyway, I search some recipes of how to make polboron. I found few websites that I like but this one site is easier and uses less sugar and butter. This is the website http://kusinerasaamerika.blogspot.com/2008/04/polvoron-just-like-goldilocks.html. This taste really good! But when it cooled it gets harder like a candy. My youngest daughter can't bite it unless I smash it before I give it to her...but it was good.
1 1/2 cup of Shifted flour
9 tbsp of butter ( 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp) milted
1/2 cup of sugar
3/4 of powdered milk ( NIDO without the word Kinder+) or Anchor milk
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- Toast the flour in the pan over a medium heat. Stir continuously until light brown roughly 5-7 minutes.
- In a separate pan, transfer the toasted flour, add sugar and powdered milk mix well
- Then milt the butter and add the vanilla extract. Mix it to the dry ingredients until the butter is fully incorporated to the dry ingredients.
- Use the mold to form the mixture
- Refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes then serve.
