Why I Love This Recipe

Also known as Mexican Wedding Cookies. Favorite of my wife, so an extra batch or two is always required. A very traditional cookie during the holiday season. Similar types, with different spices, include almond crescents and Pfefferneuse.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecan meats
1 cup cake flour
Powdered Sugar


Preheat oven to 300° Beat butter until soft, add sugar & blend until creamy, add vanilla.

Measure then grind in a nut grinder, food processor or chop finely with a knife the pecans.

Stir pecans into butter mixture and sift in flour. Roll the dough into small balls, place balls on greased cookie sheet & bake about 30 minutes.

Roll while hot in powdered sugar to coat. To glaze, put the sheet back in the oven for a minute.
