The Guru Difference

Mexico Guru is a website created by two female Mexico lovers, a travel writer and a webmaster. We live in Mexico and have been exploring the country, between the two of us, for more than 50 years! Unlike many travel sites these days, we actually visit the places we write about. Stick with the Guru for the real scoop.

Spanish: polvorón

Meaning: polvorón

Un polvorón es una galleta (pan dulce, de hecho) de harina, azúcar, nuez molida y leche. Parece un poco a una galleta de crema de cacahuate. Hay otras galletas también que se llaman polvorones, pero ésta es la que conozco. Aquí hay una foto. (A polvorón is a cookie made of flour, sugar, ground pecans and milk. It’s a bit like a peanut butter cookie. There are other ones too called by this name, but this is the one I am familiar with. Below is a photo.)
