Polverones – Cinnamon Cookies


1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

HEAT oven to 350 degrees. LINE a cookie sheet with foil and set aside.

COMBINE the butter, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Use the electric mixer on high speed to cream the ingredients together (about 2 minutes).

ADD the flour, cinnamon and salt and mix on low speed for 1 minute.

SHAPE the dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. CHILL the dough for 2 hours in the refrigerator or in the freezer for 30 minutes.

ROLL the cookie dough into 1-inch balls and place on the cookie sheet 1-inch apart.

BAKE on the center oven rack for 15 minutes. REMOVE from the oven and cool the cookies on a wire rack.

Once the cookies are cool, ROLL them in a powdered sugar and cinnamon mixture.

MAKES…..48 cookies

NOTES: I left the dough overnight in the refrigerator. After letting it set on the counter until it reached room temperature, the dough was very soft.

I used the smallest dipper to make the dough balls…..1″ diameter.

When cooked, the cookies do not taste very good. After rolling them in the cinnamon/powdered sugar mixture and letting them set overnight in a container, they are delicious…..melt in your mouth. (If you like the taste of cinnamon, these cookies are for you.)

I saved the leftover cinnamon/powdered sugar mixture to be used with oatmeal, cereal, and etc.
