Polvorones - Mexican Cookies

90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
10 ingredients
3 servings
These pretty little cookies have the flavor of orange, butter and walnut. The powdered sugar balances with a touch of sea salt. I ate cookie after cookie all in the name of being able to write this recipe introduction- or at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Wrapped in colored tissue paper makes them a perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. From Williams Sonoma Mexican
