Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
1cup flour
1/2 or 1/4 cup butter or margarine(butter is better)i used 1/4 it didnt go well, actually it is according to your mixture
1/2 sugar
2/3 or 1/2 cup milk(I suggest using Nido Fortified)

if making more just make this as the ratio.

materials to use:
wooden stick
cooking pan(try not using tefal)
molder(you could make more if you use the oblong shape)
mixing bowl

Most important thing needed

Step 2: Toasting flour

First strain the flour to make the flour soft with no big objects then

put the flour in to the pan and toast till light brown. Do not leave it alone toasting on open fire.

Note: if the flour is very brown it wont taste good, the final product ill taste like burned bread or such..

Step 3: Cool down

Step 8: Then last: Mold the overall mixture

if you want the quality of Goldilocks use the oblong shaped molder.

Step 9: Refrigiate

Perhaps you can explain to those people who are unfamiliar what Goldilocks is?
Goldilocks is the name of a Filipino food establishment. It is widespread here in the Philippines. They sell Polvoron as well.
