Mexican Cinnamon Cookies

These Mexican Cinnamon Cookies go by the original name of Polvorones de Canele, which comes from the Spanish word ‘polvo’, meaning dust. This refers to the light cinnamon sugar ‘dusting’ on all the cookies. They’re traditionally served at Mexican weddings but you can find them any time of the year, as everyone loves their sweet flavor and buttery texture.

I first discovered them at an experimental coffee bar in my neighborhood! These buttery Mexican cookies are usually made with butter, flour, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, salt, and cinnamon. The dough is rolled into small balls, which are then coated in cinnamon sugar before being baked.
