Texas Posadas - Pan de Polvo

Strong female characters

With a filmography that spans nearly 40 years, Almodo has always been consistent with his memorable, outspoken, and nuanced female leads.


Pan de polvo crumbly, cinnamon-anise infused cookies that are rolled in sugar melt in your mouth. These tiny cookies are made in large, large batches and are always the first to go, they are that good.



Combine canela, anise and water in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer. Remove from heat and cool completely.


Pre-heat your oven. Place the canela sticks (cinnamon) on a baking sheet and warm in oven. In a molcajete or food processor finely grind warmed canela sticks and sugar. Place in a bowl and set aside until ready to dust cookies.


Combine all of the dough ingredients in a large bowl and knead, add tea and continue kneading until the dough come together.


Combine well, then remove dough from the bowl, divide dough in fourths and roll out on a floured board and use your favorite cookie cutter and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet.


Remove from oven, allow to cool a few minutes and dust with cinnamon sugar.
