Plated + Served: Mexican Wedding Cookies

January23

I grew up with Mexican Wedding Cookies… little puffs of melt-in-your-mouth happiness… at holidays, christenings, weddings. If there was a celebration, these were on the sweets table.

Since these shortbread-like cookies are so easy to make, they are popular all over the world. You may know them as a Snowdrops, Viennese Sugar Balls or a Russian Tea Cake.

I like to toast the nuts because it intensifies their flavor in the cookie. And, most important, I always double-dip the cookies in the powdered sugar… it gives them a nice finish!
