    Sorry I don't have a recipe for you but it sounds like a yummy idea! I would google some traditional mexican recipes. The ones in Spanish are prob the most "homemade" and the best. Do you mean empanadas?

    You can find a recipe online, but I havent tried any of them. You can type in "recete para galletas de boda" or "receta para polvorones" That should give you good results

    Is that what they are?? Polvorones? I love those! I've always heard of "mexican wedding cookies" but never really knew what they were. Yeah just google mexican wedding cookies or polvorones. I like using allrecipes.com, but I would also google in case you find a more authentic recipe. Good luck! Let us know if you find a good one!

    Hey ladies, this is my first post, so hopefully it's helpful!
    We call it pan de polvo and I have a really good family recipe I can share. I think it's the same thing you're talking about:

    Pan de Polvo

     

    Make tea: Add 2 tablespoons Anise seeds and 1 Cinnamon stick broken into pieces to 2 cups water.  Bring to a boil, steep until cool, and strain.  Measure 1 ½ cups and discard the rest.

     

    Prepare sugar coating: Grind fresh Cinnamon sticks so that the result is coarser than store bought ground Cinnamon.  Mix with sugar and additional store bought ground Cinnamon to taste.

     

    Blend 3 pounds regular Crisco with 1 ½ cup sugar.  Add 1 ½ cup tea.  Gradually add 5 pounds of flour.  Knead until dough holds together.  Shape into small cookies using a cookie press or by hand.

     

    Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown on the bottom.

     

    While cookies are still hot, roll in the sugar

    I can't believe I've never heard or seen these cookies before. Sounds yummy!
