Powdered Milk Candy
POLVORON (Powdered Milk Candy)
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/4 cups milk powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/2 sticks of butter (6 oz.)
polvoron mold or small biscuit cutter

In a non-stick pan over low heat, toast flour until light brown. Remove from heat and let cool in a bowl. Add powdered milk and sugar to the toasted flour, blending well. Set aside.

Melt butter in a pan over medium low heat. Add vanilla extract and mix well. Pour melted butter mixture into the bowl of dry mixture, blending well with a wooden spoon until evenly moist. 

Press mixture into a polvoron mold, using the back of a spoon to pack it tightly. Release into a flat container. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or so until polvorons are firm. 

Wrap individually with cellophane or tissue paper, frilling paper ends for a decorative effect. Keep these festive treats in a tightly covered tin container in the refrigerator.

If you cannot find a polvoron mold, use a small biscuit cutter. Press polvoron mixture in a large square container to about 1/2-inch thick. Refrigerate for 2 hours and when firm, cut through to bottom of presse4 mixture with a biscuit cutter. Carefully transfer molded polvorons into prepared wrappers. Do the same procedure for the left-over mixture.
