Cookies and cream polvoron

Polvoron is a popular Filipino shortbread. Traditionally, this delicious snack is made with only a few basic ingredients—including flour, milk, and sugar—but nowadays many different varieties are available. In this recipe, I made my own version of polvoron using Oreos, which are one of my favorite types of cookies.

Tips and Techniques

  1. Cream butter with sugar to lessen its grainy texture.
  2. Allow it to set inside the refrigerator before serving.
  3. Use a small cupcake pan or chocolate molder as an alternative to polvoron molder.
  4. Compact polvoron by using spoon to press it.
  5. Separate Oreo cream and Oreo cookies to avoid grated mixture from sticking to the cheese grater.
