I was cleaning the pantry when I found something which I haven’t seen since we moved here to our house in 2010.  I really thought that I’ve lost it. Glad to know that I didn’t! I’m talking about my polvoron molds…
f84fd9994029d947f90e89e3ebb85250 Polvoron: Cookies N Cream, Milo and Pinipig FlavorThey were sent to me by mother-in-law, after I broke the one that my mom gave me before we left for the US. She said I should always have these special molds so I can always make polvoron, a type of Spanish shortbread that is a popular dessert in the Philippines and is commonly given as a “pasalubong” or homecoming gift for friends and family. It is made with toasted flour, powdered milk, sugar and melted butter then pressed in the mold shown above and then wrapped in wax paper or cellophane.

After finding the molds, I just couldn’t resist making these delicious treats! The ingredients are very simple and I have them all so there was really no reason not to make them. My daughters helped and we came up with three different flavors: Cookies ‘N Cream, Milo and Pinipig(rice flakes).

We were able to make 108 pieces…and guess what? They’re gone in no time! Well, my daughters really love polvoron and they are really excited with the thought that we can now make them instead of buying from the Asian store. :)

You will need:
Polvoron mold
Japanese paper or gift tissue paper cut into 5″ squares, for wrapping
Polvoron: Cookies ‘N Cream, Milo and Pinipig Flavor


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup instant non fat dry milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup finely ground Oreos (for easier grinding, I removed the cream first before putting the Oreos in the grinder/chopper)
  • ¼ cup Milo
  • ¼ cup crushed toasted pinipig


  1. In a big skillet or wok over medium heat, toast flour with constant stirring for about 15 minutes or until light brown. Remove from heat and transfer flour to a big bowl. Allow to completely cool down.
  2. Add the powdered milk and sugar and whisk until well combined. Add the softened butter and mix well.
  3. Divide mixture into 3 equal portions. Add Oreos (including the cream) in one portion, Milo in the other, and pinipig in the last portion. Mix well.
  4. Scoop mixture into the mold and compact it using a spatula or spoon. Be sure that the mold is filled to the rim without gaps. Release it into prepared paper. Wrap and twist both ends of the paper.
  5. Serve as dessert. Place leftover polvoron in an airtight container.
