Baking Classics

The Technique

Polvorones Con Aroma A Naranja

Polvorones Con Aroma A Naranja or Orange Scented Polvorones are a simple variation to this classic polvoron dough. It is the shaping technique that distinguishes it from other styles as just a cookie scoop & a drinking glass are needed to replicate the look. If variety is desired, bake half of the dough using this method & prepare the remaining portion using the technique for Galletas Con Grageas for a beautiful presentation. The cookies are ideal to serve for American Thanksgiving gatherings, Christmas & birthday celebrations. Learn how to make this wonderful classic in your very own kitchen.

Polvorones Con Aroma A Naranja
makes 4 dozen

1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 egg
3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Granulated sugar

Cream the butter, the shortening, the sugar, the orange zest, the lemon, zest & the lemon juice on Medium speed with a stand mixer until light & airy, about 3 minutes. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the sides of the bowl using a rubber spatula. Add the egg. Mix the dough just until blended. Whisk together the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend just until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into a log of even thickness. Divide the dough into four equal pieces & wrap each with plastic. Chill 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Portion the dough using a standard cookie scoop. Place on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Flatten the dough pieces using the back of a glass to 1/4-inch thick. Press a circle indentation in the center of each piece of dough using the large end of a pastry tip. Sprinkle a little granulated sugar in the middle of the circle. Bake the pans, in batches, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool completely.

How To Make Polvorones Con Aroma A Naranja

Although simple in nature, Polvorones Con Aroma A Naranja or Orange Scented Polvorones are a real treat. Fresh citrus highlights this lovely cookie filled with butter & a bit of shortening while just a small amount of additional granulated sugar gives it a signature look. When pressing the dough portions flat on the pans using a drinking glass, place a small piece of a plastic zip top bag in-between so they release easily which in turn prevents sticking. Look to Baking Classics: Polvoron for comprehensive photos & instruction to guide you through blending the dough, if necessary.
