Polvorones Sevillanos

Our family tradition is to make Polvorones Sevillanos in Christmas, this tradition comes from Spain.
You can wrap them in all kind of Christmas decorated tissue, and maybe offer them in little boxes as presents.

2 kg all purpose flour
•1 kg good quality lard
•1 kg powdered sugar
• 4 Tbsp ground cinnamon
•1/2 cup powder sugar

How to do them
Preheat the oven to 300ºF.
Measure and pour flour out onto a cookie sheet. Place in oven and "toast" the flour. Occasionally move the flour around on the sheet, so that it toasts evenly. Leave in oven for about 30 minutes. Remove and set aside.
It has to be completely cool to start working.
Cream lard, sugar and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add the flour .
Place a sheet of waxed paper on a cutting board or other flat work surface. Press the dough together to form a ball. Then press the dough onto the waxed paper. Carefully flatten it down to about 1/2 inch. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the cookies the traditional one is round
Use a small spatula to carefully move the cookies from the waxed paper to a cookie sheet for baking they are very delicate
