Mexican Wedding Cookies are traditionally given as wedding favours. It’s also be called as Snowball cookies or Russian Tea Cookies. The names may be different but the cookie is basically the same. Mexican wedding cookies can also vary by the type of nuts that are used. I use almonds, but walnuts and pecans can be substituted. The nuts give the cookie a great texture and flavor.  Because of the powdered sugar this cookie basically melts in your mouth.  It’s a soft, tender cookie. These cookies traditionally are made with finely chopped pecans. But I like to chop the almonds really finely so that the dough inside is smooth. You can keep the almonds in bigger chunks if you’d like. As far as ingredients, wedding cookies usually consist of ground nuts, flour, butter, sugar.

HOW TO STORE MEXICAN WEDDING COOKIES?

I like to store these cookies at room temperature in an airtight container. They can be frozen, but you may need to reroll the cookies in powdered sugar before serving as sometimes the powdered sugar “melts” into the cookie.This recipe is fairly easy to make and a great one for kids to try with your supervision. They will have a ball rolling them in the powdered sugar and then popping them in their mouths.:) .

Notes:

  1. We can use any nuts like walnuts / pecans. Also instead of grinding nuts to a coarse powder we can chop it roughly. I ground the nuts so that this will help hold the cookies together and the cookies won’t be dry.
  2. Roll the cookies in confectioners’ sugar twice to make sure the cookies are well coated.
  3. You can freeze these cookies. Defrost and roll in confectioners’ sugar again before serving.
  4. We can Blend 1 teaspoon of cinnamon into the flour before you add it to the butter mixture.
  5. We can Add 2 teaspoons of finely grated lemon zest to the butter mixture and omit the vanilla.
