Mantecados and Polvorones are very traditional holiday treats - the original recipes date back to the 1500's. Flavored with almonds, cinnamon, and some with a hint of lemon, these are the perfect little something to have with your coffee or tea. Imagine the most impossibly delicate shortbread cookies you've ever had, and you'll be close. They are to Navidad in Spain what ginegrbread men are to Christmas in the US. IMPORTED.
