One of my favorite memories growing up is making polvoron and yema with my sister. Aaah, the smell of burnt of flour…
I thought of making polvoron because I want to increase Aki’s milk intake. According to our favorite pedia in the whole wide world, Dra. Vienne Saulog, one of the possible causes is that he is drinking less milk now. Since our last check up, Ate Dorina and I have been more proactive in offering fresh milk in between and during meals.
1 2/3 cup All-purpose flour
2/3 cup Full Cream Milk. I think I used a mix of Bear Brand and Lactum 3+
1/2 Cup Refined Sugar
1/2 cup Salted Butter
3/4 cup Margarine
Melt the butter and margarine in microwave. Set aside.
Toast the flour in the pan until fragrant. This takes about 10 to 15 minutes
In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Add the melted butter and margarine. Mix well.
Using a polvoron molder, which I got from Shopwise for less than 30 bucks, mold the polvoron.
Chill them inside the ref for 30 minutes before wrapping. I actually did not get to wrapping part. We started eating the polvoron right away.
We kept the polvorons in an air tight container inside the ref.
These polvorons are really yummy but I think we can get away with much less butter and margarine. I got the recipe by the way from my Goldilocks recipe book.
