  • On a pan, toast flour in moderate heat for about 15 minutes, or until light brown, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
  • Remove the pan and transfer the mixture into a big bowl.
  • Add the powdered milk, and toss for another 3-4 minutes, then add sugar and melted butter.  Mix well using the wooden spoon.
  • Fill the Polvoron mould with the mixture, press it hard by using a spoon, then release it. If it is still too loose, add more butter or olive oil. Make sure that you could pick up the polvoron without it crumbling straight away.
  • Place the Polvoron in an airtight container, then chill in the fridge until firm.
  • Carefully wrap the polvoron individually in japanese paper or cellophane.
  • Keep the Polvoron refrigerated until you want to eat them. You can store them on the fridge for about a week, or you can freeze them.
