I first tasted goldilocks polvoron when I was 1st year college when one of my auntys' friend brought it to us as her present coming from manila. I can say that Polvoron really made with the best quality ingredients. The flavors that was brought to us was pinipig, peanut and cashew. All i tasted with much like and from that time on, i have search for ingredients on how to cook polvoron with same taste as Goldilocks. My mother used to cook it when we were kids but the taste not likely same as to what I tasted from Goldilocks. Today, we have no worked due to what they call All Souls Day, so I cooked and the result was admired by my friends. One said that I cooked it same as to Goldilocks. I don't know if she's telling it right but when i tasted it the taste same. Other friends like it too but to my mind maybe they haven't ate polvoron for long time. Anyways, to those who like to cook, just 4 cups of flour, 80grams bear brand milk, 1 1/2 cups butter, and 1/4kl sugar. Happy holiday and have a happy cooking. God Bless

Here is a recipe for Goldilocks polvoron. It is a little different from yours because it also contains pinipig (a particular kind of rice flour which I can't get in my country) and it involves roasting the flour before mixing with the other ingredients. I think that the pinipig not only gives a particular flavour but also helps to bind the dough, making it less crumbly. Adding ground peanut or cashew flour instead would give a different flavour and a more crumbly cookie.

And another: http://kusinerasaamerika.blogspot.com/2008/04/polvoron-just-like-goldilocks.html Toasting the flour seems to be essential. Otherwise the recipe is very like a traditional Scottish butter shortbread, including the technique of moulding the dough into cakes before baking. In Scotland, there are intricately carved wooden shortbread moulds which give each cookie an attractively patterned top, often with a picture of a thistle - the national flower of Scotland.

I also like polvoron but not much. I also cooked same ingredients like what you did,and i add little of dairy cream. You can also try adding some chocolate,kisses or cocoa powder to make it chocolate flavored. You just need to be experimental sometimes. Have a good day always

Chocolate flavored i haven't tasted yet. thanks to your chocolate and kisses suggestion. I am considering it the next time to cook. I agree with you that sometimes we need to be experimental. Who knows our experiment much better than that of we admired yummy taste. Thanks for sharing. Happy blessed day to you. God bless.
