    I’ve never seen then wrapped. The only thing I can think of is to help keep the powdered sugar off of your fingers.

    Polvorones are served daily. They are available in super markets and in convenience store where they come in a handy personal serving of six. Wrapping them in tissue paper is probably not symbolic of anything. Perhaps at one time in the past they were presented that way in the bakeries because someone thought they looked more delicate that way or because that is what was available.

    Mexican wedding cookies? Really? In Mexico they are simply called polvorones.
