do you think you could replace the shortening with butter or coconul oil?
i made this polvorones but they flatten too much,could be to much shortening please help me
You could replace with butter but it won't be the same texture. This cookies have a tender texture like a shortbread. Also the cookies should not turn out to flat you may want to cut back on the shortening...I say about 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Sorry I took so long to reply, I didn't realize I had responses!
