The festivities on the eve of Three Kings Day always remind me of my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend my early years in Spain, which gave me the opportunity to become familiar with many of the traditions of this beautiful country and its cuisine. I remember on the night before Three Kings day we would head to the streets to watch the parade where they would give away candy and all the kids would enjoy watching the Three Kings head to our homes to give us gifts. Part of the fun was in leaving them food as a sign of appreciation and among the many offerings you could always find the polvorones de almendras that my mom would bake the night before. The scent of almonds toasting is one my fondest memories.
Here I share my recipe for almond polvorones with you. Enjoy!
