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.
To make Mexican Cinnamon Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:

LOVE this recipe...these came out GREAT!!! I've always wanted to make these and this recipe was super easy. I will definitely make these often and throughout the year. 😋😉
Loved these Mexican cinnamon cookies they were very crunchy on the outside and slightly soft on the inside but the taste was super good for sure.
Spread nutella in between two cookies and thank me later (-;
My kids are obsessed with these cinnamon cookies though the churro was a lot more tasty this was great too.
Becareful with the vanilla extract because if oyu add to much the taste will be aweful..
Added some chocolate chips into this and topped it with almonds.
I made way too much dough but now i got cookies for a whole week lol..
Great idea never had anything like this up until today which i'm glad i gave it a chance after taking a singular bite lol.
Bethany you outdone yourself again scrumptious cookies for any day of the month and you can add a bunch of other things to them too.
I'm in love with this recipe! So awesome and flavorful.
Vegetarian mexican cookies= best dessert out there. Super happy with how it turned out i even shaped the cookies as hearts.
Didn't like these cookies as much as I liked the cinnamon rolls with nuts.
Ended up using brown sugar instead of powdered cause its way too sweet for me.
Obsessed with this they were affordable to make and great with caramel drizzle.
Great cookies with some sprinkles on the top.
Took longer than an hour for me to make these about 1 hour and 20 minutes or else the dough would be uncooked on the inside.
Thanks for the nice dessert recipe going ot be making this a lot more often since its simple and cheap :)
