I was craving polvoron from Goldilocks last weekend. Being here in small town Iowa, it was very difficult to find polvoron or any Filipino food and snacks. So I went online, googled "special polvoron recipe Goldilocks" and found multiple sites with the recipe. Believe me, my polvoron tasted just like the ones they sell in Goldilocks. This was way cheaper and I was able to fill a cookie sheet with this recipe.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup melted butter (I used 3/4 cup melted butter; microwave butter for 15 to 20 seconds, then set aside)
1. Toast flour in a skillet or a pan over moderate heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown, stirring constantly (you have to stir constantly or your flour will get burned!).
2. Remove the flour from heat and put it in a large bowl. Add powdered milk, sugar and melted butter. Mix thoroughly.
3. Use polvoron mold to make it into compact bite size polvoron. I couldn't find one here but I found that 1/8 measuring cup worked great too as a mold. Put the molded polvoron in a cookie sheet. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
3. You may wrap the molded polvoron in a tissue or Japanese paper but I just put them straight to my mouth.
I hope you try it and if you do, please leave a comment here.
