Hi aunty, thanks so much for the recipe. Erm, other than frying the flour, there's no more baking? That's so cool, may be can make these and give to my helper :)

Hi Yuri,

yes this is very easy to make. I hate to eat milk powder but this Polvoron makes me eat the milk powder unconsiously.

Hi Aunty Lucy,
Just to check with you on the "cup" measurement. do i need to do conversion to gm or just use the measuring cup? if measuring cup, what cup are u using in your recipe? Could you kindly help? Thks in advance for the recipe. Regards, Chris

yochana said...

Hi Chris,

I did not convert to gm. I just use a cup of measure. Scoop out the flour and give a little shake to level it. During frying add in a little more flour cos it will be lighter and drier after frying. For this Polvoron, plus minus is not a problem. This is a Non-failure Recipe.

hi aunty do i have to chop the nut or grind the nut into powder? what about if i use peanuts does it taste good? thanks

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

you can use any nuts which you like - chopped it up coarsely so that when you bite into it, it has a crunchy feeling.

No baking aunty? Easier work lah. Can i use a star shaped cookies cutter(quite big shape) if i dont have a plunger?where did u get yours? can we add cranberry bits? You're so kind aunty, sharing recipes with others. God bless you!!

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi ash,

you're most welcome..

as long as it's a ring, you can make polvoron. Make sure you press it tight then remove it from the ring and then chill it before wrapping.

Thank you
