Mexican Wedding Cookies

To go along with our wedding and shower theme, this week’s recipe is Mexican Wedding Cookies. This is an easy and quick cookie recipe, similar to short bread cookies. Serve them up for a party or a quick snack!

Recipe for Mexican Wedding Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat butter, 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar and the vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and pecans, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 1-1/2 inches apart, on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 14 to 15 min. or until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Roll warm cookies in remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar until evenly coated; place on wire racks. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

    These look yummy!! Thanks for visiting our blog! We love our cat too…we were just "boxing it up" to pick on my parents who do not love cats but were expecting a package from us. They thought it was funny. No actual cats were harmed in the process ;D Thanks again for stopping by! I'll have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
